Samenvatting

A lonely boy finds his feet in a new city by watching his neighbours' lives unfold behind their lit windows. Adjusting to life in a new city is tough. When a young boy moves from the countryside, everyone around him seems so unfriendly. Lonely and home- sick, he sits on a bench outside his new apartment block and watches the busy urban lives going on behind the lit windows. A writer struggles with writers block, a cook creates magnificent meals for herself, a young woman cultivates a luxuriant garden on her balcony and mum struggles to keep four kids under control. Night after night he watches his neighbours' lives unfold before him, observing the tiny details of each story, until one evening someone else is sitting on his bench. Gradually he begins to interact with the people around him, and decides to throw a big party to bring all the neighbours together.... This is a heartwarming tale about fitting in and making friends, illustrated in Aart Jan Venema's distinctive, intricate style. Packed with hilarious details, Night Windows is a beautiful book that will keep children young and old entertained for hours.

Recensie(s)

KIRKUS STARRED REVIEW: Deeply colored illustrations are quirky and cartoony offering plenty to look at. Readers can spin their own stories about the characters as they hunt for objects and people, named in the verses. The story brings the many characters together to share a dinner party, with a message of friendship between diverse people, but it's the artist's weirdly funny sensibility that shines out of every page. FOREWORD REVIEW: From a bench outside his noisy building, a lonely boy observes each apartment as it is perfectly lit against the dark night sky. This is an illuminating tale about making friends and coming home. Rhyming verses track the boy's findings until one evening he realizes he isn't alone on the bench anymore. Audiences can follow along through the ever-changing window pictures, search for objects in I Spy fashion, or simply enjoy the animated tale of moving to a new city.
