Here is a magical bedtime story, sure to inspire readers with its message of friendship and kindness.

Nina is afraid of the dark. Luckily she has a nightlight, but one night the power goes out. What can Nina do to keep the shadows from creeping in? She catches a firefly to keep her company. But soon it's clear that what works for Nina is not good for her new friend, and so Nina has to make a decision.

This is a story that celebrates the joy of doing the right thing-even when it's not easy to do-with stunning black-and-white illustrations and fireflies represented by glowing spots of color-perfect to capture the effect of this heartwarming fantasy for the youngest child.

Gabriel Alborozo previously worked as a cartoonist for magazines such as Private Eye and Punch, but his first love is and has always been creating art for children. He lives in London with his wife.

Editorial Reviews

"Alborozo's upbeat, cartoon-style is particularly suited to this story, in which nighttime fears are overcome through resourcefulness and positive thinking." -Booklist"The story itself and the writing are wonderful, but the real magic of Good Night, Firefly lies in the pictures, which are incredible and flawlessly composed. (The illustration of Nina reading under her covers by the light of a firefly is worth the price of admission alone.)....Good Night, Firefly delivers a master class in the use of contrast and sparsity in illustration." -Kinderlit"Alborozo's illustrations...are both striking and adorable. This book's story is equally appealing, celebrating the magic of fireflies." -The New York Times
