About this item
--Publishers Weekly, starred review"A quiet book for sharing in a cozy setting."
--School Library Journal
"The blue-hued mixed-media illustrations soothingly depict a farm as it moves from dusk to night and bring a hush to the book--and no doubt its readers as well."
"Christopher Silas Neal's lovely and serene illustrations, in matte twilight hues of blue and rose, suggest a sparkling nighttime world that is simultaneously vast and cozy. Clearly Ray has worked to make her language dense and [Margaret Wise] Brown-like, and at times you can feel a gentle incantatory force."
--The New York Times
"The book begins at dusk, the sky slowly going from pink to blue to black and starry, the shadowy gray tones of the illustrations a consummate match for the restful mood of the text."
--Horn Book Magazine
