The Dark by Lemony Snicket

But one night--
it did.

"Laszlo," the dark said, in the dark.

I am afraid of the dark. I cannot go to the bathroom without turning on all the lights in the apartment along the way. I occasionally scream in the middle of the night when I sleep. (Last time, I screamed when I visited my pregnant sister in Tokyo. I hallucinated and saw a little person dancing. Please note: I am not addicted to anything.) 

Laszlo, the main character, is afraid of the dark. But his curiosity is stronger than his fear of opening a chest in a dark corner of the basement. After reading this book, I am still afraid of the dark. I would not go downstairs in the middle of night; even though the dark is actually friendly and meaningful. It is exciting & mysterious, and a story with a happy ending. Laszlo stops being afraid of the dark. The illustration is simple, but creepy with the details of old houses & redish-stains. I should have not read this book on a stormy night...
