Amazon Description

Where do shadows go at night? Young readers will find out when they take a trip to Shadowville. 

Gorgeous block-print style illustrations with a retro feeling accompany a whimsical text and reveal the secret life of shadows in this delightful picture book that follows shadows to the magical land they visit after the sun goes down.

• illustrator Michael Bartalos originally published this charming picture book in 1995, and this reissue brings back all the charm of the original with a beautiful new cover and endpapers

• after dark, freed of their daytime jobs, the shadows come out to play in Shadowville, where they can relax, play sports, shop, and even dine, "though they've eaten huge amounts, they still weigh only half an ounce"

• bold, contrasting illustrations and rhyming text make this a fun read-aloud for children age 3 to 7
