MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

I really love and enjoyed ‘Twas the night very much. I love the concept of using pictures only to tell this beautiful story of someone needing help himself, willing to help another. I’ve seen many picture books for little ones, but this is the first I’ve seen for older children. And really, adults will love this one as well, because I know I do!!

As you can see in the ‘teaser’ pictures here, the author uses vivid detailed pictures to tell his story. What I like most about this book is, children of all ages can view these pages and write their own story. For me, this is awesome because it not only teaches children to love books, but this concept of a wordless book teaches children and adults alike to make up their own heartwarming story. This is something I use to teach my son, as well as my niece to do, because it gives them such a vivid imagination. I am for anything that encourages a child to pick up a book to read, and I believe this book will do just that. This is one I highly recommend! I reviewed an ecopy of this book but I plan to buy a print copy to have for my little ones.

A copy of this book was given to me by the author or publisher. I am not required to write a positive review. The opinions here in this review are totally mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

My name is Marin and I was a child a very long time ago. My father passed away when I was one year old. My mother remarried and I was raised by my loving (but strict!) grandparents. After losing their son, they were terrified by the thought of losing their grandson. For this reason, they didn’t let me play on the street, swim in the nearby pond or explore the forest with the rest of the kids.

This was also the reason I learned to read and write long before I went to school. My grandparents surrounded me with books. Books became my imaginary parents and my fictional friends. Apart from my genetic building blocks, books also came to be the main component in my development as a creative, compassionate and competitive individual.

I studied nuclear physics, art, and literature, but I enjoyed art the most. As a young artist, I was eager to succeed, winning prizes from various countries. I later became a partner in an advertising agency and switched my attention to serving clients.

My last award was somewhere in the early nineties – The Best in the West by Corel Draw Corporation. Oh, a few more boring things about me: I do not drive, I do not drink carbonated beverages, I have never consumed food from McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC or any other fast food restaurant, I do not have a mobile phone, I have never used legal or illegal drugs (except Gravol when I fly), and I have never visited my GP (much to the disapproval of my wife). I read. I read every day. I am what I am today because of books. This publishing house is my little “thank you” to all of them.
