Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- Evocative landscape paintings bolster a lackluster text in this slow-paced reminiscence of nightfall on a family farm. A narrator (unidentified at first) leads readers on a tour, inventorying the sights and sounds--a ``whippoorwill's hollow song arising,'' the ``sun glowing like a jack-o'-lantern,'' ``lambs bleating as they nestle warm and close.'' As dusk deepens, the child and her grandfather sit on the front porch, watching night approach. With the darkening sky, the pacing of the narrative becomes contrived--``Night is coming. Is coming. Is.''--and the identity of the narrator becomes blurred when the text continues after the girl falls asleep. Henterley's dramatic paintings give the story a depth it otherwise lacks, while whimsical touches--rabbits hopping out of the hay field, mice peeking from behind a pumpkin--provide visual surprises. Interesting perspectives and pleasing compositions are unfortunately rendered in an inconsistent palette, making some pictures unreal and almost too vibrant for the hour. A lopsided effort, the illustrations overwhelm the unoriginal text. For a better sense of mood and place at night, stick with Cynthia Rylant's Night in the Country (Bradbury, 1986) and Reeve Lindbergh's Midnight Farm (Dial, 1987). --Dorothy Houlihan, White Plains Public Library, NY
