A lovely and tranquil celebration of nature

The sun has set, the day has ended, but the night hasn't quite arrived yet. This magical twilight is known as the blue hour. Everything in nature—sky, water, flowers, birds, foxes—comes together in a symphony of blue to celebrate the merging of night and day.

With its soothing text and radiant artwork, this elegant picture book displays the majesty of nature and reminds readers that beauty is fleeting but also worth savoring.

"Richly Illustrated. . . . Each shade of blue seems prettier and more dramatic than the one before, giving emphasis to the color's remarkable tonal varieties in a picture book that both dazzles and soothes."
