Stamper, Vesper (author and illustrator.) What the Night Sings. Knopf Books for Young Readers, 2018. $19.99. ISBN: 978-1524700386. 272p. Gr.7-12. P5 Q8
This book is about a young girl who loses all her loved ones in the Nazi concentration camps. The illustrations, done in shades of grey and brown,t portray the poverty and depression of the Holocaust. Even though it happened a long time ago, I felt like I knew this girl and her suffering and joys. I think it’s important for all of us to know about this so it never happens again and this book (along with Maus, my favorite graphic novel) is a good way to learn, even for kids who don’t like to read.
