Creatures of the Night
by Stephen Brooks, illustrated by Roger Wilson
Ages 4-8 32 pages Purple Sky Publishing September 2005 Hardcover    

Nighttime isnít so scary once you are familiar with the Creatures of the Night, and this poetic and colorful childrenís book introduces little ones to the many beasties that roam in the dark. Below the blanket of stars, we meet barn owls and foxes and field mice and frogs, lightning bugs that flicker, coyotes that howl at the moon. Children will no doubt feel comforted that the creatures of the night are no scarier than those that walk during the daytime.

The soft, brightly colored illustrations are playful and cute, adding fun to the poetic and lyrical text. In fact, this book is like a lullaby for kids who want to go off to sleep with images of adorable animals dancing through their heads. Stephen Brooks is the author of several childrenís books and has been a Federal Agent for over a decade. Rodger Wilsonís illustrations and graphics have won him awards and his work appears in many books, as well as museums. Together, they give kids a cozy nighttime read to enjoy as they succumb to sleep, no longer afraid of the shadows and sounds that creep and crawl just beyond their bedroom window.
