One of the most acclaimed children's book illustrators of our time now takes his legendary skill with watercolor to new heights in this lavish visual adventure. As a curious little chipmunk leaves his nest to greet the twilight, he gazes at the glittering sky above him. He can't help but also notice the sparkling dewdrops on a spider's web, the lights of the fireflies, and the shimmers of moonlight on the water. "How I wonder what you are!" marvels the tiny creature, launching a dreamlike quest to reach for the stars.

Caldecott winner Jerry Pinkney fuses a beloved childhood song with gentle woodland illustrations. The result? A soothing bedtime tale.

A playful chipmunk preparing for bed imagines himself floating down a river and into the night sky, greeting robins, opossums and bats along the way. Pinkney guides readers on a dream-like exploration of nature. Softly focused watercolor and colored pencil illustrations carry the reader from twilight into the silence of evening.

A truly distinguished illustrator, Pinkney is a five-time Coretta Scott King Award winner and five-time Caldecott Honoree, in addition to winning the Caldecott Medal. His eloquent illustrations testify to his skill with a brush.

An elegant, quiet and breathtakingly lovely book.
