The Night Box

The Night Box by Louise Greig and Ashling Lindsay has a new twist on the changeover from day to night. Max is a small boy who watches the day fade away as everyone waits for the arrival of night. He has the key to the Night Box, and once he opens it magical things happen. Dark tumbles out with a big whoosh, and night takes over the world in a gentle way. Later Max opens the box to let a tired night inside and day is released again. The nocturnal world is beautifully portrayed.
