Nighttime, with all its shadows and sounds, can be disconcerting for even the most lion-hearted. In this tale, as the moonlight touches a little boy's quilt, he says, "I hear noises at night," as his and his dog's ears perk up. "I like to pretend when I shut off the light, / The noises turn into adventures at night!"-and thus the color palette changes from blues to brights. The sounds are first identified, and then imagined scenarios come into play. A vroom of a passing truck becomes the youngster flying a plane. The tick-tock of the clock becomes the trotting of a horse as the boy rides out west. One of the best spreads is prompted by the hiss of the heater. It shows the youngster wrapped in a snake's puffy coils, the background ablaze in orange, but the snake's eyes show that it is completely charmed by the boy's flute playing. The expansive illustrations, in dazzling acrylics, amuse and enchant. This tale is a wonderful way to ease bedtime fears and may even result in children creating their own soothing game. (Picture book. 3-6) (Kirkus Reviews)
When a little boy can't fall asleep, he imagines all of the late-night noises in his house as extraordinary adventures. With illustrations by the illustrator of the best-selling "Diary of a Wombat," the outlandish images of bedtime dreams are brought to life.
From the "hisss" of a heater to the "whiee" of the wind, noises suddenly become other fantastic sounds and soon lead to great adventures for a newly tucked-in boy and his dog. The drip of a faucet becomes the waves splashing the bow of his great ship and the boom of thunder is the drumroll for a circus trapeze artist.
With dynamic, vibrant illustrations by the popular illustrator, Bruce Whatley, and musical rhyme by Beth Raisner Glass and Susan Lubner, "Noises at Night" perfectly captures the imagination of every sleepless child at bedtime and shows kids that bedtime is more fun than scary-and exhausting! After all of his dream-like wanderings, the boy and his dog fall asleep.
