Rick Allen color illustrations. New in New jacket. Book CONDITION: NEW 2011 Houghton Mifflin large hard cover (pictorial boards) and DJ (in mylar jacket), second printing. Newbery Honor Book. Beautiful color illustrations by Rick Allen. Poems that children can appreciate and recall. CONTENT: Welcome to the night, where mice stir and furry moths flutter. Where snails spiral into shells as orb spiders circle in silk. Where the roots of oak trees recover and repair from their time in the light. Where the porcupette eats delicacies-raspberry leaves! -and coos and sings. Come out to the cool, night wood, and buzz and hoot and howl-but do beware of the great horned owl-for it's wild and it's windy way out in the woods! This Newbery Honor-winning picture book combines beautifully written poetry with facts of the forest and elaborate illustrations to form a marvelously engaging collection. Glossary. 1 copy.
