THE HOUSE IN HE NIGHT is a glowing, magical read that my grandchildren love! So much so that after checking it out numerous times from the library my husband & I purchased a copy for each household where we have grandchildren. The charming little rendering of Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry Night" late in the picture book suggests illustrator Bet Krommes' inspiration for her swirling, nightscapes. A perfect. little treasure of a book for all ages.
Publishers Weekly, 2008-05-12 Using only a few graceful words per page to illuminate the dark, this bedtime gem shines its light clearly on things that matter--a home filled with books, art, music and ever-present love. Krommes's (The Lamp, the Ice, and a Boat Called Fish) astonishing illustrations are so closely intertwined with the meticulous text that neither can be isolated without a loss of meaning. The book begins, intriguingly, "Here is the key to the house./ In the house burns a light./ In that light rests a bed./ On that bed waits a book." That book takes the child reader up into the skies and back home again, to sleep ("dark in the song, song in the bird, / bird in the book, book on the bed"). Krommes's black-and-white scratchboard illustrations are as delicate and elegant as snowflakes, and she uses a single color, a marigold, to bring warmth to both home and stars. This volume's artful simplicity, homely wisdom and quiet tone demonstrate the interconnected beauty and order of the world in a way that both children and adults will treasure. Ages 3-6.
