A soft moonlit starry night casts a veil of slumber over the mountain meadow animals
In eighteen pages of softly glowing illustrations and metered verse, the author invites young readers to quietly watch as soothing nighttime envelops the mountain meadows: Glittering stars and fireflies twinkle in the night. The moon casts its muted light through the trees of a mountain meadow. The owl and owlets in the tree watch as the skunks, fox, rabbits, and meadow mice prepare for bed. And nearby deer lie down as the baby wolf cries out to the moon. These are the magical moments that happen every Starry, Starry Night.
