ISBN: 9780763642426
Published: Candlewick - August 9th, 2011

We all have heard of Noah and his ark, but what about Naamah, his wife? Bartoletti lyrically imagines Naamah’s role on the ark, soothing every person and animal into sleep and comfort. The repetition of “at night” on each page, and the chorus of “Naamah sings all through the night” lulls as one imagines an unexplored biblical figure. The collaged illustrations are both intense with the flooding world, and sleepy sweet. A beautiful and intriguing new lullaby to share.

Published: HarperCollins - December 24th, 2018

Winner of the Hugo Award, the Locus Award, and the Newberry and Carnegie Medals, this is storytelling at its best. Neil Gaiman’s tale of an orphaned boy raised by the ghostly inhabitants of an ancient graveyard, perfectly complimented by the illustrations of Dave McKean, is highly imaginative, witty, and a little bit creepy.
