The rhyming text by Boniface is nicely metered, short, and informative. Those double page spreads each show a creature of the night in its nightly doin's. And Kirkova's illustrations most resemble Dav Pilkey ala "When Cats Dream" a bright (and yet NIGHT) mix of blocky heavy line cartoons and realism.

My little reader has had this book now for well over a year and he still enjoys taking it off the shelf. I thought I had already reviewed it but having had the book for a while gives me more insight. This book's special technology springs to life when you open the book wide and spread it flat. The motion of turning the page down triggers a movement effect in the "animated" windows showing the various night animals out and about doing their thing. The 4 line rhyming quatrain structure of two to a page describe the animal and it's life in the night as we are all alseep. The writing is clever but light enough not to detract from the animated motion sections. Kids will often open and close the pages over and over after you or they read out loud the text because they want to see the Hedgehog scurry back into the log or the wolf howl at the moon over and over! The art is vivid but darky colored in order to highlight the flourescent motions in the movement windows.

Animals featured in the book are:

Possums, Owls, Hedgehogs, Crickets, Wolves, Bats, Raccoons, Fireflies and frogs, a non-threatening generic Spider, a Jaguar, a Hippo and then a Hamster in a little boy's room. The back pages give a simple paragraph about all the night creatures featured in the book and serve to encourage the child to ask questions or get more information about each of them.

None of the animals are scary but if your child is fearful of any one of the animals, such as the bats flying, be sure to clear up your own misconceptions about these creatures first and hold the book yourself so you can stop the motion by keeping the page flat. I liked the presence of potentially "scary" animals such as a spider, a bat and a a wolf because in reality, these animals are crucial to ecology and you can remind your child that just like the little boy in the end, they too are sound asleep, & all safe in their beds when these animals are the most active! How you present the book will make a big difference in whether they are "spooked" by an animal or whether they think the animal is "cool". I would say the book's art and motion technique highlight the mystery of the night but do not portray this time of the day as anything to be afraid of at all. It's a very positive book that will not stay on the shelf once read! It's an item to be touched, opend and closed, looked at from angles and enjoyed over and over.

Sturdily made, it's held up very well in the year we've had it. the cover is made of coated board so it wipes clean well. the interior pages are not made of board but a nice heavy paper. Try to discourage your own little reader from sticking their fingers into the motion windows or pulling on them. They're high quality but trying to investigate them too closey will damage the book. Trust me, kids will try to investigate how the animation windows work! If they know going in that they can "break" the motion, they are less likely to mess with iit since it's "so cool.'

Such an adorable book! I love that the characters literally flutter across the pages. It's sure to keep my 2 year old entertained for a long time to come.
Packaging of the product was perfect! The book arrived with NO shipping wear and tear. Looks like I bought it at the store myself : )

This sturdy, vibrantly illustrated book about creatures that come out in the night is sure to enchant young children. What pops out when you open each page are the delightful animations, that exhibit night animals in action -- flying, leaping, howling or waving their sinuous tail as the page opens or closes. It's a neat effect, that kids will love and that I enjoyed quite a bit. The animation is just a small part of each two page section, and fits into a much larger picture depicting one or two night animals. The pictures are vividly colored and nicely illustrated - it's a unique look that the cover illustrates nicely: rich, dark colors of the night, whimsical or devious eyes, intriguing background shapes lightly suggestive of a habitat. The short, poetic, rhymes describing each section are nice too, they read well and suggest something interesting about the behaviors of each animal.

Of the spider, for example, "The spider spins her silk web, as evening breezes flow and ebb. She flits along the silken track, just waiting for a midnight snack."

The last page includes an intriguing factoid about each of the featured animals, such as the fact that a spider's silk is strong as nylon but stretches much longer, or the impressive fact that you can estimate the temperature by counting the chirps of crickets for 15 seconds and then adding 40 to give the temperature in Fahrenheit.

The animals covered tend to be found in North America, but a few, like the Hippopotamus or the Jaguar, are found elsewhere. The book doesn't give any hint of where each animal is likely to be found, apart from the fact that mountains figure in the background of the wolves, water in the background of the frogs. Mushrooms are found in several of the animal backgrounds.

Kids love books with something unique about them; we had lots of board books and popup books while our children were growing up. My youngest (8 years old) is probably a bit too old for this one. I had him read it to me, and he was intrigued but it wasn't something I think he'll clamor for nightly. When he was younger we read some of his favorite books over and over again, and I think this is one we would have read lots of times. A very nice book, with a special animated touch that doesn't feel like a gimmick. A minor complaint is that because the animotion elements are a bit dark - these animals are nocturnal, after all - you have to read it in a very bright room in order to see them. We tend to read books with only a night lamp, since I find this helps my children acclimate to bed time, but for him to see the animations I found I had to turn on the main light as well. Still, that's a minor point, and it makes sense that the pictures would be dark, and they remain quite colorful and vivid in spite of this. Overall, this is a handsome book, sure to delight young children, likely between 3 and 5.

LIGHTS OUT, NIGHT'S OUT is a beautiful, fascinating, and clever feat of engineering. This imaginative book, by William Boniface and illustrated by Milena Kirkova, combines lyrical rhymes and vibrant pictures with a unique technique that creates animation and movement on every page. This technique, referred to as AniMotion, captured my four year old daughter's attention and really involved her in this book.

LIGHTS OUT, NIGHT'S OUT is not a story book; rather, each page has a witty little rhyming verse featuring a creature of the night. Accompanied by gorgeous, colorful, and detailed illustrations, LIGHTS OUT, NIGHT'S OUT is an easy reader, as well as great book to read aloud. The added bonus of the animated pictures is icing on the cake; my wee one was completely fascinated by the movement and loved watching the night creatures' antics.

The AniMotion in LIGHTS OUT, NIGHT'S OUT works very easily; simply opening and closing the pages causes movement in the Animotion panes. Creatures scamper, hop, howl, fly, and hide across the pages. Whether you are 4 or 40, LIGHTS OUT, NIGHT'S OUT is an exceptional picture book - one that will keep you interested and delighted throughout many, many readings.
