The Midnight Fair

We rated this book:


“This wordless picture book asks what happens after the county fair closes for the people. Who should notice but a group of woodland animals? The animals come in and turn on the power and get ready for an evening of fun. They eat treats ride rides and have the time of their lives until dawn. Will the people know of their fun or will the animals get away with it? The illustrations are gorgeous. Which being a wordless picture book they are the star. Beautiful fair colors. A great depiction of this being at night. I loved the feeling of movement of the rides. It made me laugh to see the porcupine come away with candies of all kinds. I liked that the illustrator used everything from the endpapers to the title page to put illustrations on it.

From a parent’s perspective, this book will help your kids’ imaginations take flight with the question of what would happen if? I think this is a great book to help children learn the art of storytelling. From a child’s perspective, I read this to my baby niece, and she seemed to enjoy it. My three-year-old daughter liked the pictures too. My age recommendation for this book is baby to eight years.”
