Imagine that you are all alone in the sleeping city. In the darkness even the most familiar places take on a different aspect, sometimes beautiful, sometimes eerie and even frightening. Perhaps mysterious things are happening: a giant pterodactyl spreads its wings above the city; far below ghost riders stare from the windows of a long-lost subway car; paintings in a museum come to life. In this fascinating book, award-winning illustrator Stephen T. Johnson takes readers on a nocturnal adventure to an unseen world that just might exist.

The visual magic in this book is haunting & may have inspired similar images in the 2106 remake of the movie Ghostbusters. It’s a little spooky; certainly a book for older kids. By internationally renowned local artist & author Stephen T. Johnson.
