Lewis and his mum are on the bus home from the city when a wheel POPS. Everyone must get out and wait on the side of the country road.
Lewis is bored… until the sounds of the night start calling to him. He follows a firefly to discover a whole world of interesting night sounds.
This book is so ‘kid’. Everything about it. From the frustration Lewis feels to the curiosity that pulls him into the night. Kids will connect with it all.
There’s also some great humour in here for adults, which makes it one of those picture books both kids and adults will LOVE.
Sally Soweol Han is an extremely talented creator. Her illustrations, like her words, are something really special. Her sketchy, scribbly style is so inviting, and her targeted use of colour in this book is unique and engaging.
Nightsong is a magical picture book. One I suspect will be adored by kids, parents and teachers everywhere.
