Switch on the Nightby Ray Bradbury
Synopses & Reviews
A new, larger trim size and a handsome jacket make this reissue by premier science fiction author Ray Bradbury and Caldecott Medal-winning artists Leo and Diane Dillon a stunning gift book.
A little boy likes lanterns and lamps, but he doesn't like light switches because they turn off the light. Then one day, a little girl named Dark shows up at his door. She helps the boy to see light switches as turning on the night, rather than turning off the light. And when he switches on the night, he also switches on the stars and moon and the crickets and frogs. Sure to reassure any child who has felt afraid of the unknown, Switch On the Night will also impress adult readers with its subtle message about things that are "dark" and its imaginative approach to understanding that which is different.
In a reassuring story for children afraid of the unknown, a little boy overcomes his dislike of light switches when a little girl shows him that when he switches on the night, he gets stars, the Moon, crickets, and frogs. A new, larger trim size and handsome jacket make this reissue by a premier science-fiction author a stunning gift book.
The sci-fi master storyteller's picture book was written nearly 50 years ago to help his own children overcome their fear of the dark. This new edition has a jacket and has been given a larger, more impressive gift format to showcase the Dillon's magnificent illustrations.
