Praise for Night Walk to the Sea:

"Lovely and lyrical.... The art--like the text--is magical" --Kirkus Reviews

"Miyares' ink paintings render the deep night as mysterious and welcoming, a lush, velvety place where cozy closeness of the woods gives way to a majestic sea, with a pair of sturdy characters who move lightly through environments that they can appreciate but not fully own." --The Bulletin

"[The] illustrations match the gentle tone of the story, with muted ink washes in blues and grays surrounding pops of yellow light from the lanterns and flashlights that illuminate every spread.... Back matter describes... the science behind bioluminescence." --The Horn Book

"By relating one child's encounters with awesome natural wonders, this quiet picture book lets others feel his satisfaction in saving a firefly and becoming a protector of nature." --Booklist

Praise for Daniel Miyares' Night Out:

"There aren't any lessons or morals--just the pleasure of watching a lonely boy find the friendship he wishes for." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

Praise for That is My Dream!:

"A must-read illustrated poem that breathes new life into Hughes' "Dream Variation." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"With luminous washes of watercolor and the lyrical language of Hughes's 1924 poem as his text, Miyares (That Neighbor Kid) presents a resonant vision of an African-American boy who imagines a more just world." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
