As night falls : creatures that go wild after dark / written by Donna Jo Napoli and illustrated by Felicita Sala.

Napoli, Donna Jo, 1948- (author.). Sala, Felicita, (illustrator.).


As night falls, the Earth cools. Waters calm. Winds hush... But ouside, nighttime is action time for some. Silly action. Hungry action. Wild action. From microscopic organisms to giant cats, it's surprising who you'll find awake in the middle of the night. Dinoflagellates guzzle floating bacteria, bumblebee bats loop and swoop, racer snakes slither, weasels sneak and circle, and spot-bellied eagle owls leap and sweep. One by one, the animals of the food chain find their next scrumptious treat. -- Provided by publisher.
