  1. I was introduced to the art of Ana Juan recently, via her illustrations for Cat Valente s novel The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making This is for younger readers and as far as I know Juan wrote the story as well I didn t feel it quite worked, but it was certainly original and interesting, as are her lively and colorful illustrations.The Night Eater follows the Moon He gobbles up the elements of the night, fresh fizzy stars and chocolately darkness But one day he noti [...]

  2. A very clever and creative way of looking at how night turns into day, with gorgeous pictures and imaginings The Night Eater s job is to make sure all the parts of night are eaten up so the sun can wake everyone when it s time for morning But one sly comment from the moon about the Night Eater s weight leaves everyone stuck in nighttime for several days, until the children of the world beg him to come do his duty All is resolved by the end, with everyone realizing they like all bits of day and n [...]

  3. The story was nice and even if I didn t really liked the art, it worked well to depict the night, the day and the characters The book had a small poetic touch that I enjoyed.

  4. The Night Eater Ezra Jack Keats Book Award for New Illustrator, 2005 This book creates beautiful imagery upon reading and encourages imagination and dreaming from all Author and illustrator Ana Juan said this on her creating of The Night Eater, One day, early in the morning, the sun rose and I took a look at the sky The darkness was going away like smoke behind the buildings until it disappeared completely, so I started to think about where all this darkness was going and the idea of The Night E [...]

  5. 3 stars for the story and definitely 5 for the art, rounding to 4 My son he s 6 picked this as his library book and we read it together The concept of the book is really great, that the Night Eater goes behind the moon, eating up all the night each day so the sun can rise It s a simple and evocative idea for a child to connect with And the art is just amazing There are at least two pages I would like to stare at for hours, or frame and hang on my wall.But the execution of the story is not quite [...]

  6. I purchased this book not only out of a desire to check out Ana Juan and add a picture book by a leading Hispanic author illustrator to my Spanish classroom, but because the cover illustration was so fantastically and creepily alluring After having read the book with a number of children, I highly recommend it, for Juan s breathtakingly beautiful and dreamy artwork if nothing else But the story is entertaining and endearing in its own right, following the trials and tribulations of the title ch [...]

  7. I thought this was a little strange, but it was still a nice story The night eater is basically responsible for turning night to day and he does is again and again until the moon brings up how big he s getting, and the night eater decides he won t eat the night any The night goes on too long, and children ask where he s gone When he opens his mouth to answer he accidentally eats a tiny taste of night and like every addict a bite is all it takes to make him forget everything and start eating agai [...]

  8. Wonderful illustrations and a very imaginative story At first I thought it might be a bit scary to the kids 4 and 6 yrs old , but they really enjoyed it The Night Eater sounds like a scary guy, but the story portrays how the Night Eater is necessary in the transformation of night to day, showing the Night Eater following the moon and trailed by the sun The children in the book love the Night Eater It is a gentle story and good for bedtime, dangling ideas of cotton candy and chocolate to seed goo [...]

  9. Delicious illustrations This is a story about a creature whose responsibility is to eat the night away so that there is sun on earth The moon criticizes him, alluding to the fact that he s getting fat, and he decides not to eat the night any Of course, the unpleasant consequences of never ending night on earth leads him to decide that he has a very important job and gets back to it I could relate I have the tendency very immature, actually to quit if someone doesn t like what I m doing I can lea [...]

  10. The Night Eater eats the night as runs across the sky, chasing the moon and leaving his friend, the sun, to greet everyone with a new day However, eating all that night causes him to put on weight and he decides to not eat another bite of night Well, the night was everywhere and the sun was trapped and could not shine Could the children convince the Night Eater to eat another tasty bit of night Great story for preschool storytime Requires some explanation beforehand to explain what s happening, [...]

  11. This book had excellent illustrations that were magical but also pretty creepy Just what I would have liked as a child, but definitely not for every child The story itself was a fabricated myth about why the cycle of day and night For me the moment when night eater decided to take back up his old job was forced and half heartedly done Other than that, this would be good for a one on one read but only if the child isn t easily scared or likes scary books.

  12. I only review kids books if they re really wonderful and this is It s a book about a dumplingish trollish being who spends all evening eating the night until all that is left is day Problems ensue when the buttons on his pants pop off and he diets creating unending night The illustrations are also wonderful, wonderful We keep reading this over and over I see many library renewals in our future.

  13. Kindergarten and 1st gradeNight eater eats clouds of the night but gets picked on by the cloud because of his weight He eventually goes back to eating the clouds because he is needed by everyone and the moon feels bad for his actions This is a great book when teacher is dealing with bullying in the classroom or environment of the students This can show them how it feels to be the person being picked on.

  14. I don t usually review kids books, we read so many that none usually stick in my mind but this gorgeous book sure did I read it to my little three year old and it sparked so many thoughts in her little mind the storyline us cute, but the star is the art Oh wow, it just opened up so many creative discussions It took Sandlot reference forreevvurr to read because she insisted in painstakingly examining each element and asking a ton of questions It was awesome Go get this book

  15. Aptly named Night Eater eats the night so daylight can come The moon makes a slight comment about his size, causing him to feel self conscious about eating so he stops The result is a world without the sun At first all enjoy the beauty of the night they have previously missed It doesn t take long for everyone to miss the daylight Illustrations evoke softness almost like clouds, pillows, etc , perfectly appropriate for a night story.

  16. This is a great way to introduce night and day lessons to pre k and kindergartners It is also a great book for those who enjoy fantasy books, magic, and supernatural creatures It also has a greek mythology feel so you can recommend it to students who enjoy myths It would also make a great bedtime story And is filled with great art for that artistic student of yours.

  17. A magical tale about the Night Eater, who takes a break from eating the stars and the night clouds But without the Night Eater s services, the Sun can t come out in the morning Somehow, the Night Eater must be persuaded to nibble up the night again Exquisitely delicious story and illustrations

  18. My son and I swap out half a dozen books at the library this week, and although many are cute and charming, few are true stand outs This one is an exception The illustrations and story combine to make for a an exceptional and creative fantasy for little ones and adults to enjoy.

  19. This book was very cute I enjoyed this book because it gives children a fun story to think about when going to sleep and waking up every morning, knowing the night eater would come daily I loved all the color and quality

  20. One of the most gorgeous children s stories we own Helpful in my pursuit to teach our baby daughter Spanish in addition to English and German with a wonderfully creative and entertaining storyline Illustrations are whimsical and heartwarming A definite read for your little one

  21. This book is worth getting for the illustrations alone, round and clear and huggable But as it happens, I like the story too and the image it creates of a being you see him there that runs around gobbling up night so we can have day It s such a fanciful idea, I just love it.

  22. I liked this book because of the illustrations This book was about a fictional character that eats the night and that s how it becomes daytime After the moon makes a comment about how big the night eater got he stops eating the night.

  23. Really cute and unique story of the Night Eater a creature that eats away the night so we can have morning Loved the drawings.
