Synopsis

The Night Riders by Matt Furie

Matt Furie's glorious first picture book - now in paperback, too! A nocturnal frog and rat wake at midnight, share a salad of lettuce and bugs, and strike off on an epic dirtbike adventure toward the sunrise. As the friends make their way from forest to bat cave to ghost town to ocean to shore and beyond, new friends are discovered, a huge crab is narrowly avoided, and a world is revealed. Packed with colorful characters and surprising details on every hand-drawn page, The Night Riders is the ideal book for anyone who has ever wanted to surf to the mountains on the back of a dolphin.

Reviews

On every page, Furie imagines ever more pleasantly surreal plants, trees, and animals. Fans of the wandering, exploratory nature of many current video games will be mesmerized. - Publishers Weekly
