Reviews from Around the World
"Described as a bedtime book on the back of the book and from initial reviews, I found it to be far more than this seeing it as a celebration of poetry and power of language to embrace the natural world that is all around us yet seldom considered. A young boy seems to live in a house with his mother and cat. Upon him he holds a key which unlocks day and night, letting them out at their respective times. When he does so, both aspects play their part in embracing the landscape and its denizens. Not only does the book celebrate the beauty that the night brings but also encourages the child reader to embrace it too. " - Mathew, GoodReads
