Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525459480, Hardcover)Monica Wellington chronicles the nighttime goings-on of a bustling metropolis in this bold and vibrant nonfiction picture book. Each nighttime hour reveals a new scene, some lively and some quiet. At seven o'clock, ballet dancers warm up for a performance. At midnight, a guard makes his rounds at the art museum. Near dawn, truckers deliver their fruits and vegetables to the city's markets. Monica Wellington, well known for her brilliant, graphic illustrations, has filled these nightscapes with her hallmark vivid colors and surprising details. Views of the city sweep from soaring skylines to silent streets to the interior of an all-night diner. A treat for dreamers and night owls alike, this book shows young readers many nighttime jobs that help keep the city running all day.
