Sunset isn't just the end of the day. For Ava, it's also when Nally Nighttime comes to visit: a very cuddly, mostly-playful, sometimes-cranky creature who brings songs, stars, dreams, and lots of energy for the next day.
When Ava and her parents sing, Nally brings out the stars and shadows and makes Ava's flashlight shine a bright circle on the wall for her cat to chase. There are hugs and stories when Nally is around. And Nally gives Ava wild and wonderful dreams that change every night.
But best of all, when Ava gets enough sleep, Nally Nighttime gives her energy, and courage, and smiles to enjoy all through the next day.
In this wonderfully original story, Hewison's simple text and vivid pictures personify Nighttime as a lovable character who illuminates the best bits of bedtime and beyond. Perfect for readers young and old, Nally Nighttime reminds us about the value and joy found within the time of the day we can so easily neglect.
