Synopsis: A new, larger trim size and a handsome jacket make this reissue by premier science fiction author Ray Bradbury and Caldecott Medal-winning artists Leo and Diane Dillon a stunning gift book.

A little boy likes lanterns and lamps, but he doesn't like light switches because they turn off the light. Then one day, a little girl named Dark shows up at his door. She helps the boy to see light switches as turning on the night, rather than turning off the light. And when he switches on the night, he also switches on the stars and moon and the crickets and frogs. Sure to reassure any child who has felt afraid of the unknown, Switch On the Night will also impress adult readers with its subtle message about things that are "dark" and its imaginative approach to understanding that which is different.

From the Back Cover: "[The] story has that vivid sense of magic that infuses all of Bradbury's poetic writing. The illustrations enhance this otherworldly mood. . . . [A] gem, visually appealing in art and design, strongly atmospheric, and founded on an ingenious strategy for coping with a common fear."
--School Library Journal
