About the Author:

Mary Ann Fraser has illustrated over 50 books and written and illustrated seven books, among them In Search of the Grand Canyon, Ten Mile Day, and Forest Fire, including her Where Are the Night Animals? in the Let's Read & Find Out series, an Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children. Interested in nature since she was very young, she keeps ten turtles, a newt and a crayfish as pets. Ms. Fraser lives in Simi Valley, CA.

From Kirkus Reviews:

PLB 0-06-027718-1 paper 0-06-445176-3 This Stage 1 entry in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series focuses on eight common nocturnal creatures, from the barn owl to the harvest mouse. Each animal is introduced through a simple action: coyote hunts, opossum munches berries, tree frog calls to its mate with a ``Kreck-ek, kreck-ek.'' The text is curiously disrupted by a middle spread of the dawn and definitions of the terms diurnal and nocturnal; the nighttime animals run for cover, but on the next page, readers are returned to sunset and the examination of those animals resumes. Fraser then emphasizes their interrelatedness: skunk sprays coyote for coming too close, barn owl snatches up mouse, raccoon snatches a crayfish, brown bat seeks out insects. A final spread shows morning, where a pajama-wearing child and raccoon meet through a window glass as ``the night shift ends. The day shift begins.'' Naturalistic illustrations provide stills of each animal against deep blues, teals, and aquamarines; endnotes explain where nocturnal animals hide during the day.
