...unsatisfying ending...Illustrations are largely redundant of text, which is another instance of missed opportunity to enhance the book as a whole. Yawn.

Synopsis

When toddlers look outside and see the inky blackness, they might well imagine that night is nothing but a dark, empty and scary place. This book brings to light all the interesting and amazing things that happen during the darkness of the night when we are all fast asleep in our beds.
