My sister recently moved, and I went over to help her get her new place set up. She had left me one of the best jobs, setting up her library for her. While I was organizing her books, I discovered this slim little volume and decided that I needed to sit down to read it on the spot. The story is just a short little tale about gargoyles and their goings-on at night when the rest of the world is asleep. I thought the story cute, but what is really astounding about this book are the charcoal sketches by David Wiesner. They are just fantastic! I've included a couple of shots of my some of my favorite pages below. I'm hoping that I'll be able to find a copy of my own someday to add to my library.
