The Midnight Fair
978-1-5362-1115-3
As darkness falls on the fairgrounds, the animals venture out of the woods for one magical, memorable night! An exhilarating wordless picture book.Far from the city, but not quite the countryside, lies a fairground. When night comes and the fair is empty, something unexpected happens. Wild animals emerge from the forest, a brave raccoon pulls a lever, and the roller coasters and rides explode back into bright, neon life. It’s time for the woodland creatures to head to the fair! In a gorgeous wordless picture book, author Gideon Sterer and illustrator Mariachiara Di Giorgio offer an exuberant take on what animals are up to when humans are asleep. Suffused with color and light, the panel illustrations celebrate the inherent humor and joy in deer flying by on chair-swings, a bear winning a stuffed bear, three weasels carrying a soft pretzel, and a badger driving a bumper car. With thrills both spectacular and subtle, Midnight Fair will have readers punching their tickets again and again to revel in this fantastic nocturnal world.

Ventanas
978-1-5362-1598-4
Mientras pasea su perro al anochecer, un niño se percata de las vidas que lo rodean en esta hermosa oda a las noches de otoño, a la exploración del vecindario y al regreso a casa.Antes de que tu ciudad se vaya a dormir, puede que decidas dar un paseo con tu perro a tu lado, y salgas de casa hacia la caída de la noche. Cualquier cosa puede ocurrir en ese paseo: puede que te encuentres con un gato, un amigo o incluso un mapache. Y mientras caminas por tu calle y doblas la esquina, las ventanas que te rodean comienzan a encenderse una a una, hasta adentrarte en un laberinto de lámparas de papel, cada una ofreciéndote una fugaz y luminosa instantánea de tus vecinos, cuando las familias se reúnen y se preparan para pasar la noche. Con una ambientación singular y a la vez universal, y un cuento que le rinde mucho homenaje a The Snowy Day, Julia Denos y E. B. Goodale han creado un libro único sobre el concepto del hogar y la magia de la curiosidad, y también sobre el sentido de seguridad y pertenencia que todo niño tiene derecho a disfrutar.
