Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When day is gone, and shadows begin to deepen, it is time for Grandfather Twilight to close his book, put on his jacket, and go for a walk through the forest.

Little birds hush as he walks by, and the rabbits and other small creatures watch in silence as he performs his very special evening task and returns to his house among the trees. Small readers and listeners, too, will sense the serenity of this poetic story, and will be comforted to learn that the twilight is a gentle, friendly time.

Exquisite pictures extend and illuminate the text, to reveal the nightly miracle so faithfully performed by Grandfather Twilight. Perfect for reading aloud and for sharing at bedtime, this beautiful and reassuring book will be cherished by old and young alike.

Synopsis:

"Dear Readers, Over the years, many people have told me about the peaceful hush that comes over a child, even a roomful of children, with the reading of Grandfather Twilight. When I created the book, I could only hope that something of the serenity I feel, myself, at twilight might come through the words and art. But I never dreamed that so many children would truly love it as they do, ask for it over and over again, find solace for fears of the dark and sometimes, even for the loss of a parent or grandparent. I never dreamed that Grandfather Twilight would have such a wonderful long life as a book, nor such a wide reach among children and adults alike, from the youngest to the oldest. To this day, it seems a miracle to me.

Synopsis:

At the day's end, Grandfather Twilight walks in the forest to perform his evening task, bringing the miracle of night to the world.

Angel of Starlight, December 8, 2007 (view all comments by Angel of Starlight)
A perfect book for 'winding down' at the end of a busy day, 'Grandfather Twilight' contains absolutely stunning pictures but very little text. It is nonetheless a touching, precious story and should be added to anyone's collection of chldren's book masterpieces.
