Synopsis

Dusk by Uri Shulevitz

One December afternoon, boy with dog and grandfather with beard take a walk to watch the sun begin to set over the river. When the sun drops low in the sky, they start home. Buildings grow dimmer. People are rushing. As nature's lights go out, one by one, city's lights turn on, revealing brilliant Hanukkah, Kwanza, and Christmas displays in streets, homes, and stores.

Reviews

[a] quirky, cozy companion to the Caldecott Honor-winning Snow....It's delightful to see such an outgoing and sociable offering from Shulevitz, as he exuberantly embraces the bright joys of a winter night. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review * Shulevitz elegantly captures the magical quality of twilight as well as the gleaming allure of the bright lights of the big city. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review The brightly colored lights of the various festivals show that, though dusk may be the end of day, it may also be the beginning of a magical, memorable night. -- School Library Journal
