A beautiful pictorial representation of night, this book could really fire a child’s imagination. The black-and-white drawings evoke a complex web of night sounds in the forest – hushed silences, the chirping of crickets, running water, the rustling of leaves. Writer-illustrator Junuka Deshpande is also a filmmaker and it shows on every page of this visually arresting book. Samina Mishra (Book Nook, Time out , Mumbai)
