The Night/Natten

What does the wind do?

The wind blows.

How does the wind blow?

The wind blows shhh.

Where does the wind blow?

Outside, in the cold and dark.

Outside, in the night.

What happens when night comes? What does the moon do? Where does the fox go? Sara Villius debuts as a picture-book writer with a wonderful moving book about what happens at night.

Mari Kanstad Johnsen’s illustrations are irresistible and full of night creatures.

A perfect book to read by the bedside, over and over and over.
