Hm. I might like it more on another day. Probably would be treasured by some. Fits the 'Night time is a good time' topic thread in the Children's Books group, though dawn is seen as even better. (Pahrump)

A little boy is awoken by his cat who encourages him to explore the world at night. Everything familiar feels foreign with shadows making everything a little harder to discern. The sunrise is vibrant, colorful, and rings of celebration. I like the tone of this book. The text and the artwork work...
