A little boy likes lanterns and lamps, but he doesn"t like light switches because they turn off the light. Then one day, a little girl named Dark shows up at his door. She helps the boy to see light switches as turning on the night, rather than turning off the light. And when he switches on the night, he also switches on the stars and moon and the crickets and frogs. Sure to reassure any child who has felt afraid of the unknown, Switch On the Night will also impress adult readers with its subtle message about things that are dark" and its imaginative approach to understanding that which is different."
