What is the noise I hear,
that wakens me,
that shakens me,
the noise, I hear, in the dark ...
Is it the owl, the cat, or the rabbit?
Lyrical prose by Ferida Wolff and richly textured paintings by Coretta Scott King Award-winning artist James Ransome invite young readers to come along and explore the magical world that opens up between dusk and dawn.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a beautiful rhyming book about common sounds that children may hear outside of their homes. It discusses sounds of the wind, crickets, dogs, cows, and even gates and sheets on a clothesline. Each page has some rhyming words and repetition for ease and flow. I think this is nice for a classroom library because not only does it deal with sounds of nature, but also may help children understand some of the night sounds they may hear, and help them be less afraid at nighttime.
Awesome....!Beautiful....!Wonderful....!I really enjoy it.....!
