Viking 2015
Something’s out there in the dark!
First Possum hears it. Then Skunk. Then Wolf comes running.
“What could it possibly be?” asks Bat.
“Night Animals!” the animals declare.
“But you are night animals,” Bat informs this not-so-smart crew.
Children will love the funny animals in this twist on a cozy
bedtime book.

Starred Review
“Truly remarkable illustrations clearly convey the book’s raucous activity and feature beautifully rendered animals standing in sharp contrast to pitch black backgrounds…This eye-catching, slapstick foray into the worrisome night will light up the room with smiles.”
Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
“Every page is visually funny, with hilarious close-ups and slapstick animal postures…A giggle-inducing new gem for the night-fears bookshelf.”

School Library Journal
“A good title to share with children who may be afraid of the dark to help them see the lighter side of fear.”
Publishers Weekly
“In Marino’s sweet-tempered nocturnal comedy, large, scary animals flee from the threat of still larger and scarier animals…Bonus visual subplots involves Skunk’s stench and Possum’s tendency to… play possum. The spreads are polished, the story moves fast, and the laughs keep coming.”
