ADVENTURE AT NIGHT

2015 The Macmillan Prize

 

When you turn on your flashlight in the dark, what are you looking for? More importantly, how much are you missing? Adventure at Night is the story of Joseph, the daring, enthusiastic night-time explorer, who dives into the deepest oceans and the darkest caves to see whatever it is that lives down there. Yet wherever his light shines, he finds nothing. What’s happened? Joseph has no idea – until the battery in his flashlight dies, and the world around him immediately changes…


This beautifully illustrated story, presented in Chinese-English duotext, prompts us to think twice about how we look at things by reminding the reader how much lives just outside our perspective, and how much we ourselves might be pushing away as we pursue our ostensible goal. The vast oceans and endless caverns of the world are always home to more than just what meets our eye at first, and only when we step back and learn to be silent that it allows itself to be seen.
