Fantastic book to let children use their imagination to come up with the story. Different everytime you 'read' it. Great for children in year 2/3.

The well known Argentinian illustrator, Poly Bernatene did it again! :)
A wonderful wordless story about getting by mistake into a perpetual day-mode and (by collective effort) bringing the night back on Earth :))

This book is beautifully illustrated and fires the imagination of the children in my daughters class. She loves the book and its ability to inspire the children to come up with the story.

It may sound strange to suggest that a picture book without words can generate a huge number of words, but this beautiful book does just that.

The story takes place in a fantasy world where everything, even the setting of the sun and rising of the moon is controlled by a system of gears, levers and cogs. When the moon fails to rise one evening, the curtain is drawn back on the mechanics that are supposed to make it happen - and which have been waylaid by childish mischief.

When Night Didn't Come is a stunningly beautiful book that is all about encouraging parents and children to discuss questions posed by the illustrations. Who are the characters, what are they saying and how does this world work? In its lack of words this book leads to creative storytelling at its finest.

It is without words, so we can make up our own stories, using our own words. It is interesting to see what words kids could come up with. Very nice drawing too.

Borrowed it from the libary once, then bought it on amazon, just want to keep it.

I bought this as a gift for my 5 year old neice, who has a really... REALLY... big imagination. She absolutely loved it! It gave her a chance to bring forth her own input and ideas to the narrative the photos suggest. Very engaging!
