Desert Song (PB)

Desert Song (PB) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

When day is done, the sun streaks the desert sky with flame. Soon the stars come out, and with them, a host of creatures. Bats spill from a hillside cave; insects seek out the sweet fruit of the saguaro; and a lone coyote sings his haunting song to the moon.

Spare, lyrical words and luminous, richly textured pictures reveal the mysterious, hidden world of the desert night in this beautiful volume. . . .Deceptively simple, the words create an elegant repetitious rhythm that combines the immediacy of onomatopoeia with subtle, musical lines. . . . Quiet but not serene, the paintings evoke the mystery and unsettling beauty in the vibrant, stark landscape.

Tony Johnston is the award-winning author of more than one hundred books for young readers. She lives in San Marino, California.

Ed Young has written and/or illustrated more than seventy-five children's books, including Lon Po Po, winner of the 1990 Randolph Caldecott Medal, and two Caldecott Honor Books. He lives in Westchester County, New York.

A picture-book classic available for the first time in paperback.
