The illustrator of the highly acclaimed FRIDA makes a smashing debut as an author.
Every morning the Night Eater runs through the sky, gobbling up all the darkness. He eats cloudy nights as light and sweet as cotton candy, and deep dark nights that taste like bitter chocolate. His favorites are bright clear nights -- the stars tickle his nose as he swallows!
But what if the Night Eater doesn't come? Without him to devour the dark, the night animals won't go back to their dens . . . the earth and all the people grow very pale and cold . . . and children everywhere long to play in the sun. Can they convince the Night Eater to return to the skies?

This book is worth getting for the illustrations alone, round and clear and huggable. But as it happens, I like the story too and the image it creates of a being (you see him there!) that runs around gobbling up night so we can have day. It's such a fanciful idea, I just love it.
