Just before first morning light, Little Shrew is awakened by the moon.

A mysterious fragrance leads her to a garden of moonflowers, where moths flutter, crickets hum, and frogs and peepers keep the beat. 

Join Little Shrew’s merry romp in the moonlit garden in this bedtime story for adventurous souls.

A 40-page picture book for ages 2-102, written by Sarah Mackenzie and illustrated by Gabrielle Grimard.

Shimmering fireflies on the cover and gorgeous full-color illustrations throughout, this book showcases Waxwing's commitment to sharing the most beautiful books with your family.

I tiptoe through the garden gate…

Is everyone still sleeping?

Moths flutter, wings beating

Beetles nod a silent greeting

Katydids and crickets hum

Almost like they knew I’d come.
