About the Book

"A visual and linguistic pleasure." —Publishers Weekly   While tired farmers and their families are in bed, the harvest moon silently climbs into the sky and starts working its magic. For some, it is the nightly signal to rise and shine. It is time to hunt, to work, or to play in the shadows. For a little girl and her cat, it is an invitation to enjoy the wonders of the night and a last flood of light before the short days of winter set in. With an evocative text and radiant illustrations, this companion to Twilight Comes Twice offers a glimpse of nature’s nightlife long after bedtime.

SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL School Library Journal    "Impressionistic oil paintings ...Descriptive text...peaceful...the dark beauty of the illustrations captures the magic of nighttime."
