Review quote

[A]n evocative picture book that urges young viewers to 'look closer' at the night. And though it is the striking art that may rivet a child audience's attention, the text, with its soothing rhythms and strong near-rhymes full of rich long vowels ('road' / 'glow'), is an equal partner.-Horn Book Magazine
