“A little boy watches the last drips of light drop down onto long shadows. Plop! But what is he holding? Is it a key?” As the sun sinks Max gets ready for bed and opens the blue Night Box with the key. “Up comes the lid… WHOOSH! Day slips inside as Night sweeps out.” The nighttime moves around Max’s room, under his bed and then spreads outside. “Max holds on tight as darkness swirls and spills like ink into the world. Night is huge. It can hold a house. And a pond, and a forest. A mountain and a whale, even an ocean too!” In the morning Max opens the Night Box and WHOOSH! the Night returns to the box as Day brightens the world once more.
