AFRAID OF THE DARK: Episode 1 (ZAP)
by Gregg Cox
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
As a group of multi-national scientists works on finding a new energy source, they talk about the benefits of helping mankind and removing the fear that many feel in the world, especially the fear in children.
During one of their experiments, which is being held in the international complex in Antarctica, a burst of energy shoots into the sky and travels away to a destination unknown.
This small mass of energy, known as Zap, senses the fear of children around the world and seeks out different children to playfully explain how these fears can be overcome.
In this episode: Afraid of the dark, Zap demonstrates that darkness is actually only the removal of colors and that the colors are only sleeping.
