What do things do at night when humans are asleep? A universal fear is the dark and its mysteries! What comes to life under our beds that makes us pull even a thin sheet up over our feet on the hottest night as a talisman against what awaits our defenseless sleep? Eve Bunting exposes the secrets of the gargoyles, those stone, misshapen creatures that squat on the eaves of buildings during the day. David Wiesner’s shades of gray illustrations give life to the grotesque little water spouts and their nocturnal rumpuses.
