Nocturnals

The Moonlight Meeting: The Nocturnals
Nocturnals

 Written by Tracey Hecht & Rumur Dowling, Illustrated by Waymond Singleton

Cute and silly illustrations, written for children grades 1-2.  Simple story, but… (spoiler alert!), on page 44 one character introduces another without ever having been told their name and…I’m not sure all of the creatures and fruit featured in this book actually exist in the same geographical areas naturally.  I could be mistaken, and maybe it shouldn’t even matter in a book geared for young children.  Perhaps I am taking the magic out of the story.  There are fun facts in the back of the book also.  If I had to describe the book in one word it would be: adorable.

I received this book for free through a  Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.
