"[The] narration is accompanied by endearing color photographs and fun animal profiles...recurring visual cues draw attention to facts and tidbits to promote further exploration...a welcoming introduction to nighttime animals that celebrates biodiversity." —Foreword Reviews
"Language is informal and every short chapter includes mention, usually with photos, of animal babies (aww)...chewy vocabulary (crepuscular, cathemeral), explains the mechanisms of echolocation...and tucks further detail into a listing of further information on each animal, such as diet and habitat." —Kirkus Reviews
