Comments for Last Night

Last Night: 08/04/12

Link goes to PowellsLast Night by Hyewon Yum is a wordless picture book about a girl sent to bed early after she refuses to eat her dinner. That night she and her toy bear have an adventure.

The child, lead by her now full-sized bear dance in the forest and then go exploring. All of this adventure is left to interpretation as it's told strictly through Yum's colorful linocut illustrations.

Though the child doesn't come home from her adventures, she wakes in her bed. Either it was a dream or her magical bear brought her home. Refreshed and rejuvenated, the girl makes up with her mother.
It's a nice celebration of a child's imagination and a gentle reminder to parents that sometimes that grouchy child just needs extra rest or time alone.

Four stars
