Reviews

"Allen's detailed yet moody prints encapsulate the mysteries and magic of the midnight hours. In Sidman's delicious poems, darkness is the norm, and there's nothing to fear but the rising sun."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This is a fine collection for classroom use at any time, but it'll bring extra impact to those who can find a way to share it at dusk with the lights dimmed, watching through the windows as the nocturnal ballet begins outside."--The Bulletin, starred review

"This picture book combines lyrical poetry and compelling art with science concepts."--Booklist, starred review

"The dark lines of Allen's skillful lino cut prints make the perfect accompaniment to a book of night poems, with their subtle colors allowing the reader to seek out the creatures slowly, just as one's eye becomes accustomed to finding things in the dark."--The Horn Book, starred review

"The bookmaking is beautiful with the concept of night lending itself generously to poetry. "--School Library Journal
