Amazon Description

In this stunning collaboration of two exceptional talents, the striking charcoal illustrations and nimble text reveal what happens at night when the gargoyles come to life.

One Potato Review

The best kind of fright, since these monsters are harmless, and fun-loving, and swing on branches - “da-de-da” - even if somebody carved their faces all hideously wrong, and planted them on the highest ledges of a history museum. So here is an act of rebellion - all this late night carousing and thumbing their noses at the watchman -  though it’s also occasionally soulful, as when the group sits around a fountain reflecting upon “the grump of summer passing” and rudely perching birds. Finally a ballad to the misunderstood.
