One Dark Night is a cute book that has a mouse and mole who take on an adventure at night. The embark on a journey to meet a friend for dinner. We also have bear who is very hungry and we get the impression that he is looking for food as he stomps and growls in his den. We both liked how the animals are friends even though at first we are not told that. The pictures are very colorful the text is nice and big. It is easy to read and know what is going on. I think this would be a good book for those learning to read. I liked how mouse reassures his friend mole who is scared of the dark.
