Caldecott Honor artist Leonard Baskin has created mysterious, sometimes eerie illustrations of 13 unheard-of animals. A red-eyed Nightlight Bird chases away shadows. There's a Channel-Changer with a hundred-button belly--and a Buscatcher for those late mornings. These inventive poems and paintings, perfect for Halloween reading, will inspire readers to dream up their own fanciful creatures. Full color.
