Editorial Reviews

"The quiet text is a wonderful match for the pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations. The pen lines in the surrounding forest and pond are beautiful and further promote the sense of peace this offering presents. This title is perfect for one-on-one sharing at bedtime." -School Library Journal"This pleasing tale unfolds in a simply written, amiable narrative and expressive illustrations." -BooklistPraise for Good Night, Firefly:"Alborozo's upbeat, cartoon-style is particularly suited to this story, in which nighttime fears are overcome through resourcefulness and positive thinking." -Booklist"Alborozo's illustrations...are both striking and adorable. This book's story is equally appealing, celebrating the magic of fireflies." -The New York Times
