“You have to write the book that wants to be written.

And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”

― Madeleine L'Engle

Afraid of the Light book cover


A Story About Facing Your Fears

What do you do when you can't find your left shoe?

Do you run? Do you hide? Do you get mad or feel blue?

Old Ditter Von Dapp's bit of insight for you is to

Simply, courageously, fearlessly, try something new.

Praise for "Afraid of the Light"


"This wonderful, whimsical book is a little treasure for both children and adults alike. Written with such fluid, playful style, I found I could not stop smiling and reflecting on the deeper message that this book brings to the fore. If you are a lover of quirky truth, this book is for you."

Alicia Bayer

Author of "Poems From Under a Toadstool"

"[Afraid of the Light] works well as an analogy for kids who are afraid of the dark and to help them see why the dark might offer comfort, but it also works for other kinds of fears and for taking chances.


"A great story about facing your fears, taking chances and embracing the unexpected. My grandson needs to hear this message and this is a fun way to share it."
