“Tell me please: What is The Night?” asks a little girl of the earthworm, the owl, 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.
As the bat says…
Oh you creatures of the day!
Can ou EVER knopw the night?
You need light so much for sight,
When evening falls you don’t feel right.
