Nights with Dad

By Karen Hesse

Illustrated by G. Brian Karas

A luminous and lyrical tribute to the enduring, everyday sort of love between a boy and his father.

When the sun sets, Dad’s night shift as a school caretaker is just beginning. What is it like to work at night, while the rest of the city is asleep? There’s the smell of lilacs in the night air, the dusky motorway in the moonlight and glimpses of shy night-time animals to make the dark magical. Playing basketball in the half-lit sport's hall, sweeping the stage with the match on the radio, reading out loud to his father in the library all help the boy’s time pass quickly. But what makes the night really special? Just being with Dad.
