Night loves to play hide-and-seek with his older sister Day, searching all over the sky for her until it is time for him to go home to bed.

Orca Book Publishers
Night would rather play hide-and-go-seek with his big sister Day than go to sleep.
Night is a boy who knows it's much more fun to play than go to sleep. When the sun sets, he travels through the night sky in a spaceship with his teddy. Night's favorite game is hide-and-go-seek, which he plays each evening with his older sister, Day. But why can't he ever find her?

Night Boy is a unique playful picturebook about a brother and a sister named Night and Day. The rhythmic text and rich illustrations make for a bedtime story that is sure to lull children who say "I can't sleep" into dreamland. Through the personas of a brother and sister, Night Boy offers a unique explanation of how night turns to day astronomically.

The illustrations are pretty impressive. It looks like something I’d expect to see on TV. The story is about a prince (Night) and a princess (Day) – they are siblings who play hide-and-seek, but it seems they can never play together. Day sleeps in the evening and Night sleeps when it’s bright (AYO! That rhymed, oh snap!). Night searches the sky and when he finds his sister, he goes back to sleep. (submitted by MA)
