AT THE STROKE OF GOODNIGHT
WRITTEN AND ILLUSTRATED BY CLAY RICE
Reminiscent of Susan Marie Swanson’s The House in the Night, world-renowned paper-cut artist Clay Rice weaves a poetic scene of what happens around a small farmhouse as night falls.
A dreaming dog. A purring cat. A bird on a limb. A mouse on a mat. The evening glows in the twilight. And all falls quiet on the stroke of goodnight.
A baby coos; a mommy sighs. Little ones tucked in, with dreams in their eyes. A gentle hand turns out the light. And all is quiet on the stroke of goodnight.
A perfect bedtime story that gently and beautifully depicts a busy world settling in for a warm night’s sleep.
