When the "Night Visitors" return, they want to take Jack home with them. Will they succeed? The Night Visitors are back. The family doesn't know they've come. But their dog, Jack, does. Once they land, the space creatures unhook Jack's leash. They have a grand time playing with Jack and when it's time to return to their ship, they try to take Jack with them. Fortunately, Jack's collar is not built for space travel! This compelling, easy-to-follow, wordless picture book introduces pre-literate children to elements of story—such as character, setting, and action—and invites them to read the book on their own.

Review:

* "When Jack is put out for the night, something extraordinary happens. As the pup looks longingly at his family inside the house, out of the sky comes a flying blue car packed with robotlike visitors. These aliens make quick work of turning Jack's doghouse into a play house as they lounge on his blanket, overturn his water dish, and leap from the roof. The real fun begins when they unhook Jack's leash and explore the yard. The pup and his newfound friends dig in the sandbox and swim around in the pond. The night visitors like him so much that they want to take him back with them, but he manages to slip out of his leash before he can be whisked into the sky and is reunited with his young owner. Schories has created another wordless story that is easy to follow and has a timeless quality. The illustrations are full of whimsy, and the joy of both Jack and the visitors is evident as they frolic across the pages. Pair this with Nina Laden's The Night I Followed the Dog (Chronicle, 1994) for a storytime that will have listeners imagining what their own pets may get into when they are not around." --School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Dog lovers and the playful at heart will find this book fun and exciting...All youngsters, but especially your visual learners, will be surprised and delighted by this book." --Library Media Connection

"... [A] follow-up to Schories's previous wordless book Jack and the Night Visitors (2006)...The cheerful illustrations clearly narrate the story, and Jack couldn't be cuter...fun, quirky and easy to follow for pre-readers." --Kirkus Reviews
