Editorial Reviews

"[Demers]'s language is spare yet comforting, and the plot unfolds like a strangely familiar myth...Debon's glowing illustrations combine intimate visual vignettes with sweeping double-page spreads...With this title, the genre of books written to help children fall asleep has gained elegance and depth. Demers and Deben offer a poetic ceremony that bonds father and son as surely as they know the sun will rise the next morning." - Quill & Quire"Dreamy, lyrical, and as cozy as a familiar lullaby." - Horn Book"Equally effective in conjuring up visions of other worlds and inducing sleep are Debon's undersea, Arctic and world-of-wonder spreads. And effective, too, are Demers, Dominique's aural pleasures." - Globe and Mail"Every Single Night is truly an enjoyable picture book. The connection between father and son is strong and endearing....a wonderful way to end an evening and slip off to sleep." - CM Magazine"Poetic cadences and haunting paintings that are beautifully composed cast a soporific spell. While many bedtime books bring the focus inward to cozy, familiar surroundings, this Canadian one...widens to embrace the whole world." - Booklist"This comforting bedtime story is beautifully illustrated by Nicolas Debon." - Daily Press
