"Thompson's phrasing emits a fittingly hushed quality and conveys a sense of wide-eyed wonder. Savage's crisp linocuts in a medley of icy bright blues, whites and purples and blacks contribute to a chilly yet soothing nocturnal landscape." --Publishers Weekly STARRED, 11/22/2004.
"The tug of this gentle mystery will draw children into Thompson's simple bedtime story, and the hypnotic ebb and flow of her alliterative lines will keep children immersed...As arresting as Thompson's language are Savage's powerful linocuts, which beautifully reference the textures and forms of Inuit stone carvings and evoke the arctic landscape in a few elemental colors per spread: glacial blues, grays, and sea greens; the pinks and lavenders of the aurora borealis." --Booklist STARRED, 11/15/2004.
"The simplicity in the art, text, and plot belie the deft craftsmanship, like carving an ice sculpture. This bedtime story will captivate young listeners; it sparkles just like ice crystals on a moonlit night."--KIRKUS STARRED, 10/15/04.
"Bold linocut prints in cool blues offer visual tranquility in this soothing bedtime tale. Strong lines and simple shapes create clear images for young viewers." --Horn Book Magazine, 11/1/2004.
"With comforting, carefully chosen words and soft pastels shading linocut prints, this book has all the elements to make it a bedtime favorite. A successful and satisfying combination of adventure and bedtime story." --School Library Journal, 11/1/2004.

There are two editions of this book, a board book and a picture book. The story follows a little female bear cub who wakes up and takes a stroll from her den. She walks at night she sees all her favourite things, seals, whales, and then she notices shooting stars. The night puts on a wonderful show for her.
As a family we love the story and adore the illustrations. Stephen Savage's illustrations are wonderful. The subtlety in the shading and the limited pallet used really enhance the book.
