The world at night is always a little magical, either by starlight or moonlight. There is something special about the out of doors at night. This book does an excellent job of capturing some of that magic. It is well-written with amazing realistic illustrations. The artwork is reminiscent of Robert Bateman's and makes the words that much more enchanting. In the book, a young child boards the wings of a snow owl and flies through the night skies, encountering deer, fish, fox rabbits, beavers, mice and more, all while the world is sleeping. This is truly a fantastic book!
