Mr. Night wakes up in the evening and puts the rest of the world to bed (closes the flowers, quiets the animals, calms the sea, etc). In the morning the child says, Good Night, Mr. Night! Read full review

Although I can understand the logic behind comparing Mr. Night to something more deathlike, I really think this book had a much more innocent intent behind it. I loved the personification of Night, and how he seemed to have his own duties to take care of to make the world continue on as normal. Read full review
