Otters, snails and three girls eat, sing and frolic on a "perfectly bimulous" night in When the Sky Is Like Lace (1975) by Elinor Lander Horwitz, illus. by Barbara Cooney. The trio of girls shares a magical evening as the eucalyptus trees sway and the grass smells of gooseberry jam. Cooney's enchanting renderings of the "strange-splendid and plum-purple" scenes manifest the magic of both the twilight hour and the text. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
