Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this stunning collaboration of two exceptional talents, the striking charcoal illustrations and nimble text reveal what happens at night when the gargoyles come to life.

Review:

"Wiesner's duotone charcoal illustrations capture the huge heaviness of the stone figures and their gloomy malevolence as they bump and fly and tumble free in the dark." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This is not for very young children, but it's sure to have enormous appeal for older audiences." School Library Journal

About the Author

Eve Bunting has written many books for children, including the Caldecott Medal-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz, and Can You Do This, Old Badger? and Little Badger, Terror of the Seven Seas, both illustrated by LeUyen Pham. Ms. Bunting recently received the prestigious Kerlan Award. She lives in Southern California.

David Wiesner's interest in visual storytelling dates back to high school days when he made silent movies and drew wordless comic books. Born and raised in Bridgewater, New Jersey, he graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration. While a student, he created a painting nine feet long, which he now recognizes as the genesis of Free Fall, his first book of his own authorship, for which he was awarded a Caldecott Honor Medal in 1989. Tuesday was the 1992 Caldecott Medal Winner, and in 2002 David won his second Caldecott Medal for The Three Pigs. Mr. Wiesner and his wife, Kim Kahang, and their two children live in Philadelphia, where he devotes full time to illustration and she pursues her career as a surgeon.

Night of the Gargoyles might be a nice book to read on or prior to Halloween. It's spooky but not too creepy. It's also a good book for introducing the idea that there are different perspectives other than our own. A lot of writers have created fabulous stories by considering the perspective of animals, objects, insects, etc. (ex. James and the Giant Peach, Charlotte's Web). This could then lead to a discussion about using personification in our writing.
