Review by Publisher Summary 1

“Tell me please: What is The Night?” asks a little girl of the owl, the earthworm, the firefly. Glowing out from the pages, their answers merge into a tapestry of the more mysterious sides of night-time and the curious habits of creatures that come to life in darkness.  A breathtaking "nature facts" book, in which striking visuals and punny verse illuminate an alternative world where light and sight don’t matter. Filled with exciting science, while incredibly detailed illustrations evoke the mystery and magic of night-time.
