Description of this Book

In an old farmhouse, bathed in the light of a full moon, a young boy creeps to his bedroom window and looks outside. Was that a voice he just heard, or the hooting of an owl? There it is again: Come a little closer...Come a little closer...Listen to the night...There's music in the air...Beckoned by the voice, the boy sneaks downstairs, out the door, and walks toward the barn. As he gets closer he hears the sweet sound of a country fiddler and the rhythmic thumping of dancing feet. But who could possibly be having a barn dance in the middle of the night?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review With a rhythmic cadence Martin and Archambault build their story from a quiet moonlit night when 'there's magic in the air' to a very special, foot stompin' party....An engaging blend of words and pictures to set both the mind and eye dancing. -- School Library Journal, starred review Sheer magic! A fun-filled romp, ideal for reading aloud. -- Childhood Education A rousing, rowdy tale pulsing with the rhythm of country music....Rand's raucous...watercolor spreads are as spirited as the story poem. -- Booklist
