My five-year-old asked me to read this story about a girl who uses her unique ability to control shadows to defeat a mysterious evil creature called the Ooboo. Both she and my three-year-old were a little bit bothered by the fact that the Ooboo seems to indiscriminately eat people, but they both also really identified with the main character and loved the story much more than I did. Personally, I think Willard wrote many books that were better than this one, even though this book does show how well she understands childhood imagination.
