Content descriptions

General Note:
Translation of: Blanche hait la nuit.
Summary, etc.:
Every day ends the same. Night always falls. Blanche’s mom turns off the light and closes Blanche’s bedroom door. It’s time to go to sleep. There’s just one problem: Blanche hates the night. She does not want to go to sleep! She would much rather play. So she puts on a concert to chase away the moon and wake up the sun. She sings in rhyme and somersaults upon her bed, which she imagines is a trampoline. Blanche’s mother’s voice floats in: Stop that racket!” and To bed, my little songbird.” But Blanche dominates each spread with her expressive face and creative, endearing attempts to stave off sleep. Illustrations in a muted palette mimic shades of night while clean lines let Blanche’s charming facial expressions take center stage. Bursting with personality, Blanche is a willful, sensitive character kids will relate to. Blanche Hates the Night is an ideal bedtime read-aloud: eventually, exhausted, she falls into a peaceful slumber.
