Dark Emperor & Other Poems of the Night
by Joyce Sidman
Illustrated by Rick Allen
This October we are taking every opportunity to embrace the dark side, and no, we're not referring to The Force, Luke! This exquisitely illustrated book of poetry celebrates the creatures that go bump in the night from bats and owls to mice and moths. It's a great read for kids during this spooky month of Halloween and features both beautiful poetry and enlightening natural science facts about the featured animals. It's an un-scary read for a cozy night around the campfire. Oh, and did we mention that Dark Emperor is a Newbery Honor Book!
