Description

Reminiscent of Oliver Jeffers, Yarlett's illustrations are a joyful mix of digital collage, sketchbook, and saturated watercolor done in a palette of blueberry and Starburst candies. Many pictures invite close inspection, adding quirky details that fill out the story. Orion's adventures replace fear with fun, ending with a hug, a new friend, and a well- traveled pair of bunny slippers. Only sweet dreams ahead with this one.
--Booklist (starred review)

The mixed-media artwork is engaging and expressive.... A funny, savvy bedtime story that addresses common fears.
--Kirkus Reviews

The varied images are gorgeous to look at, and they will leave readers feeling fortunate to have witnessed these two protagonists' starry-eyed mutual affection.
--Publishers Weekly

Night-shy children will find companionship in Orion and comfort the Dark's gentle, friendly appearance, while grown-up readers will invent excuses to keep this book on their own shelves.
--BookPage

With detailed illustrations that pop off every page, this story is a wonderful exploration of how sometimes the things we fear the most are just things we don't understand
--Shelf Awareness

Strong support for those with unspoken fears, this book is a recommended first purchase for all libraries.
