Night of the Gargoyles
What happens at night when
the gargoyles come to life?
text by Eve Bunting
Wiesners illustrations bring gargoyles to life
with spine-chilling effect, complementing the lyrical and wryly
humorous text by Eve Bunting. The creatures swoop down from high
atop the museum, creep along ledges, and gleefully terrify the night
watchman in this marvelously spooky book.
Caldecott Medal winner Wiesners
charcoal drawings are as breathtaking as Buntings prose in
this wildly successful attempt to prove what weve always suspected:
The gargoyle lives.
Kirkus Reviews, pointer review
haunting black-and-white picture book . . . The gargoyles
impish, grotesque grins and empty eyes unblinking are
not easily forgotten.
