Haunting and dreamlike, this classic picture book illustrated by the beloved Barbara Cooney describes the strange-splendid and plum-purple things that occur "when the sky is like lace." On a night on which anything can — and indeed will — happen, three girls venture out to listen to otters sing, eat spaghetti with pineapple sauce, and watch trees dance.
