When the Sky is Like Lace
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.
Horwitz's playful text will delight and challenge readers to go out on a bimulous night with singing otters and sulky snails.
"... an original creation which survives on the power of its mood. Imaginative children with their own night fantasies may well blend this vision with their dreams."
--New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year (1975)
A great book to inpire and kindle kids imaginations. Also great for developing vocabulary.
Good for ages 5-8
