In an old farmhouse, bathed in the light of a full moon, a young boy creeps to his bedroom window and looks outside. Was that a voice he just heard, or the hooting of an owl? There it is again:

Come a little closer...

Come a little closer...

Listen to the night...

There's music in the air...

Beckoned by the voice, the boy sneaks downstairs, out the door, and walks toward the barn. As he gets closer he hears the sweet sound of a country fiddler and the rhythmic thumping of dancing feet. But who could possibly be having a barn dance in the middle of the night?

The words sing as much as the pictures. We never get tired of the rhyme, or the illustrations. This is a family favorite for the last five years running.

My mom used to read this book to me everynight. It was my favorite when I was a child, and I still think it is great. I cant wait to read it to my child.
