When the lights go out do you complain and get mad? The the lights go out in this big city the people in the neighborhood make the best of a difficult situation and come together to still enjoy the evening. What a great example of people who know how to Be Proactive and choose to enjoy a situation hat may not be ideal.
I love the colors and textures of this book. It is a graphic novel (aka "comic book") layout which is sure to appeal to a lot of kid and grown-ups alike. It is not a surprise that this was one of the Caldecott Honor books this year.
