The night air smells like irises and honeysuckle when two children’s parents wake them for an undefined adventure. They dress in the blue predawn and walk through the village as their eyes adjust. Here and there, there are signs of life: the lit windows of a passing train; the mooing of cows. Though their colors are few, the book’s illustrations are lively and lovely, making the world feel awake even before light breaks over the hills in this story about chasing natural wonders.
