Synopsis

Once Upon a Northern Night by Jean E. Pendziwol

Tip-toe through the pages of this beautiful bedtime read-aloud, and try not to break the spell of the peaceful, quiet, wintry north. A mixture of magic, wildlife and deep comfort New York Times In this bedtime lullaby beautifully brought to life by the award-winning Isabelle Arsenault, illustrator of Jane, the Fox, and Me, a northern night unfolds as a young child sleeps. Wrapped in a snug, downy blanket, a snowflake falls, and then another and another. As the magic of the night outside takes hold - animals awaken, snow swirls, stars twinkle and winds whisper - a lyrical, enchanting read-aloud evokes a winter's night, while gently lulling a child to peaceful sleep.
