About the Author:

DAN YACCARINO has illustrated many picture books, including his own Unlovable, and Trashy Town by Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha, which was named an ALA Notable Children's Book. He is also the creator and producer of the Oswald television series shown on Nick Jr. Mr. Yaccarino lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K. A soothing bedtime story that will lull even the most stubborn children to sleep. The sparse text and stunning alkyd paintings explain how Mr. Night gently puts the world to rest, tenderly closing the flowers, quieting the animals, and calming the sea. Each page is saturated with color, textured with brush strokes, and features vivid backgrounds of deep midnight blue, poppy reds, and grass greens. Mr. Night is a loose shape dressed in black, speckled with white stars, and has crescent-moon eyes. A creative double-page spread shows a young boy looking out of a window filled with a star-splattered sky that readers will recognize as a close-up of Mr. Night's face. "When I see him at my window, I know it's time for bed." Mr. Night closes the little boy's eyes and whispers dreams filled with music to him. Finally, when the sun rises and blankets the hills with a yellow-warm glow, Mr. Night grows tired and drifts to sleep as the little boy wakes up and wishes him good night. Pair with Mem Fox's Time for Bed (Harcourt, 1993) and B. P. Nichol's Once (Greenwillow, 1986) to inspire a tranquil evening of sleep.?Lisa Marie Gangemi, Sousa Elementary School, Port Washington, NY
