In The Dark

by Lisa Deresti Betik, illustrated by Josh Holinaty

Ever wonder what happens when you go to sleep at night? Discover all that’s still going on in the world after dark, in this intriguing, fact-packed introduction to the science of night.

Nocturnal animals are hunting for food. Plants are using maths (!) to conserve their overnight energy. Celestial objects only visible after dark are shining brightly in the night sky. Even our own bodies and brains are still working to keep us healthy! Amazing as it is, the world doesn’t stop just because we’ve closed our eyes.

About the Author

Born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Lisa grew up surrounded by majestic lakes and forests that encouraged her curiosity and developed her deep appreciation for nature. She now lives in Waterloo, Ontario, with her family, where she keeps a Little Free Library on their front lawn.
