‘Twas the Night by Marin

‘TWAS THE NIGHT is a wordless book that “tells” a heartwarming and inspirational Christmas story. The illustrations gift each reader, young and young at heart, the opportunity to re-imagine the Season’s wonder, and the freedom “to script” (if they choose to) their own lines to go with the images. Keep dreaming big!

In this book filled with stunning artwork, the reader discovers a story of their own making. A young boy finds an injured bird and brings it back to full health, leading to a magical experience for both of them.

This is an interesting concept for a children’s picture book. There is no doubt the artwork is beautiful and weaves a magical story. I’m not sure younger readers will grasp the concept since they are still learning to read but, with a parent’s help, they can be guided along. The artwork lends itself to many possibilities and your imagination can run a bit wild with backstory for the child and the bird.

‘TWAS THE NIGHT is unique and meaningful, I would like to see more from this artist.
