This is a delightful picture book for children...the book offers parents a powerful opportunity to teach children about tolerance and getting along with others.
--National Speleological Society News

In this charming wordless tale, a family of snoozing owls quietly perch on top of a branch until a family of bats arrive and hang directly below them on the same branch, interrupting the owls' slumber...A warm and clever tale celebrating tolerance and friendship. Best shared one-on-one or with a small group.
--School Library Journal

In this tender wordless tale, two nocturnal animal families look for a few extra winks before moonrise--and inadvertently find new friends...Successful characterization is achieved through subtle shifts in body language and the owls' large, expressive eyes. Readers will want to regularly flip the book upside-down for the bat family's perspective.
--The Horn Book
