From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 Graced with enough action verbs to fill a novel, this picture book poem about a little girl's adventure with her parents in the city at night has myriad sounds to delight and intrigue youngsters. Although some of the descriptors may be foreign to children, the large print and line-by-line spacing of words lend themself to discovery. The vitality yet mystery of Sis' art completes an artistic package brimming with action and excitement. A midnight blue night dazzled with yellow is filled with the bizarre world of carnival characters and animals, along with the familiarthe little girl's pet bird follows the family throughout the trip. Despite the plethora of animals, people, and shapes, this family is easy to spot in their brightly colored apparel. An upbeat approach to poetry, City Night is an exquisite book for an adult to share with a child, for story hours, or for children to discover on their own. Cathy Woodward, Lima City Schools, Ohio

From Publishers Weekly:

"The city lights/ up at night./ Going./Glowing./ Yellow/ Bright!" In this book for the very young, a family sets out for a nighttime jaunt to a street fair, against city skies that deepen from blue twilight to midnight blue, and a city skyline of clock tower, highrises, warehouses. The simple text of singsong phrases in very short lines leans heavily on participle strings, ("Rustling, rumbling, roaring, ringing") which nicely evoke city night sounds and textures. Pictures of the crowded fair lose the family in a sea of puppet shows, magicians, musicians and clowns in a panorama that is magical and timeless, even medieval in feeling. A quiet tucking in as the family comes home brings the city back to the present and familiar. Urban life after dark shines and glows in this book, with a texture and depth to the rough-hewn illustrations that will charm city-dwellers and country kids alike. Ages 3-6.
