The third collaboration between Young and DaCosta (Nighttime Ninja and Mighty Moby) tells the story of a lonely girl who finds an unlikely friend in her elderly neighbor.

About the Author

Barbara DaCosta writes about the mysterious, touching, fun, and quirky things in life. In addition to Night Shadows, she and artist Ed Young collaborated on Nighttime Ninja (Children's Choice Award) and Mighty Moby (Minnesota Book Award finalist). She lives in Minnesota. Ed Young is a renowned illustrator and writer of children's picture books. Born on November 28, 1931, in Tientsin, China, he moved to the US as a young man, where he worked at an advertising agency before illustrating his first book, The Mean Mouse and Other Mean Stories by Janice May Urdry, in 1962. Since then he has illustrated over eighty children's books, seventeen of which he has also written. Throughout his long career he has received over fifty awards and honors, including the Caldecott Medal in 1990 for Lon Po Po, his retelling of a Chinese version of "Little Red Riding Hood," and Caldecott Honors for The Emperor and the Kite (1967) and Seven Blind Mice (1992). He has been nominated twice for the Hans Christian Andersen Award, the highest international recognition given to children's book authors and illustrators for their contribution to children's literature. His books frequently draw on folklore from Chinese, Native American, Indian, Persian, and other cultures, and he uses a variety of media, including pencil, pastel, ink, collage, cut paper, photographs, and found materials. He lives in Westchester County, New York, with his two daughters and two cats.

Reviews

*Conversations about motivations and actions will abound as children absorb the impact of grace. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

In Barbara DaCosta's story, friendship and forgiveness emerge from the shadows to shine as warmly as Ed Young's art. I found myself deeply touched by this tender, honest story, and mesmerized by the jaggedly beautiful, moody illustrations. This book is a gift for anyone, child or adult, who has ever needed a true friend in a rough world. --Elisa Kleven, author of The Lion and the Little Red Bird
