Have you ever kept a night diary?
A beautifully touching picture book about a boy who is allergic to daylight but finds his solace in the night.
Instead of a journal, six-year-old Moon keeps a night diary. Moon can’t abide daylight; if he ventures outdoors in the daytime, he has to wear a real-life spacesuit.
One night, Moon meets a little girl and her dog on a hill. “Have you ever kept a night diary?” Moon asks the girl. “No,” the girl replies. “But maybe you could teach me how.”
Satu Kettunen is spot-on as illustrator for Inka Nousiainen’s multifaceted story: the shimmering illustrations bring radiance to the night colors, inviting readers of all ages in for an adventure.
