Perfect Picture Book Friday

nightanimals.jpgNight Animals (Viking, 2015) by Gianna Marino is a hilariously fun picture book. Possum is scared because it is night and something is out there. Then shunk is scared, and wolf, and bear. What are they scared of? Night Animals! Which bat tells them they are. Duh. This book is deceptively simple, but such a riot. And the ending has a nice surprise. I also love Gianna's drawings.

Gianna has eight picture books out with more to come--see all of them here. I need to do some more reading! In her bio, you'll see her nickname is Boomerang--read more here. And, she's a fine artist--see paintings here.
