* From publisher for review *
Hannah's Night by Komako Sakai is the first children's book I've reviewed on Carpe Librum, however, when I read the following blurb, I just couldn't say no.
When Hannah wakes suddenly in the night, she discovers a whole new world of adventure. With nobody awake to tell her off, she can do just as she pleases.
Hannah's Night is a short read, as Hannah wakes up during the night and explores the house. Meanwhile, everyone else - including her sister - is asleep.
The illustrations are unique and the book feels luxurious to the touch. Komako does an amazing job of capturing the essence of night time and Hannah is a cute and relatable character. This would be a fabulous story to read with a young child at bedtime, and would make a wonderful Christmas gift.
My rating = ****
