Midnight Fair The Midnight Fair

the midnight fair

Night falls and the sleepy families make their way out of the fairgrounds taking their happy memories home with them. Their day is done.

But eyes are watching and ears are perked and when it's dark enough and the last worker has driven away, the forest comes alive and happy animals step out of the shadows and in a burst of excitement and light the fair comes back on and now it's the animals' turn.

Popcorn, cotton candy, arcade games and the Autorama tickets cost an acorn or two and the badgers, foxes, bears, raccoons, and rabbits spin and swing and claim their prizes. It's a secret, magical world where paws and tails fly. Hold on tight little deer!

A wordless world of wonder - a place where clean up is important - and the magical walls stay strong and safe holding the joy and the fun for all until it's time to say goodnight. This is a fair every child imagines and every child dreams of -pure joy - everyone can afford to come - and happiness comes with every ticket.

b>As darkness falls on the fairgrounds, the animals venture out of the woods for one magical, memorable night! An exhilarating wordless picture book.

Far from the city, but not quite the countryside, lies a fairground. When night comes and the fair is empty, something unexpected happens. Wild animals emerge from the forest, a brave raccoon pulls a lever, and the roller coasters and rides explode back into bright, neon life. It’s time for the woodland creatures to head to the fair!

In a gorgeous wordless picture book, author Gideon Sterer and illustrator Mariachiara Di Giorgio offer an exuberant take on what animals are up to when humans are asleep. Suffused with color and light, the panel illustrations celebrate the inherent humor and joy in deer flying by on chair-swings, a bear winning a stuffed bear, three weasels carrying a soft pretzel, and a badger driving a bumper car. With thrills both spectacular and subtle, Midnight Fair will have readers punching their tickets again and again to revel in this fantastic nocturnal world.---from the publisher
