Knocks in the Night

Tilde Michels (Author) Reinhard Michl (Illustrator)


One freezing, snowy night, Peter is fast asleep in his cozy house when he hears knocking at his door. Who could it be? During the storm he has three visitors, but when he wakes the next morning, they are all gone. Was it just a dream? A clever tale of trust with a twist! With charming pencil and watercolor illustrations throughout, the story has a serious side, but shows a lighter humorous side as well. It will be sure to capture the attention of the child being read to and also the person reading it. "The engaging artwork and bounty of dialogue make this a fun read-aloud and a solid seasonal selection." --School Library Journal (U.S.) "The story is a bit thin, but the book captures a wintry mood and is handsomely designed; each double-page spread has a beautiful, white-bordered illustration on one side and ample white space for a small vignette and a stanza or two on the other. Quiet and nifty." --Kirkus Reviews (U.S.) "Engagingly written and illustrated, this book would be perfect for children in preschool and primary school and would be great fun to act out in the classroom setting." - Reading Time (Australia)
