Publisher Comments:

Nighttime is hardly quiet. Its filled with a world of strange and curious sounds. Now children discover all of the amazing animals that are wide awake when they are fast asleep in this delightful new book from best-selling author and illustrator Maurice Pledger. Sounds of the Wild Nighttime brings together incredible pop-up panoramas and mysterious animal sounds to give little ones a glimpse into the mysterious, after-dark world. They journey to the European woodland, and hear the calls of tawny owls on the hunt, then its off to the sunset shadows of the Mediterranean where they can listen to noisy cicadas. The moonlit tour continues on to the Rocky Mountains, the Everglades and the Malaysian jungle, rumbling with the majestic roar of the Indo-Chinese tiger. This wonderful nighttime adventure makes an educational and entertaining bedtime book.

About the Author

Maurice Pledger is an internationally-acclaimed artist known best for his realistic and detailed illustrations of animals and wildlife. He has had no formal art training, but achieves the realism and detail in his beautiful artwork by spending many hours in the field observing, sketching and studying his subjects in their natural environment. First published at the young age of 17, he has since had his illustrations featured on greeting cards, prints, gifts, and books. He has created several successful series, including the Peek-and-Find series, the Maurice Pledger Nature Trails series, and the Maurice Pledger Sticker Books. He is the distinguished recipient of the 1992 Francis Williams Illustration Award for the Best Descriptive Illustration. This honor is given only once every 5 years by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
