KIRKUS REVIEW

 Spohn (Broken Umbrellas, Macmillan, 1994, etc.) takes a simple observation--that night follows day--and spins a serenely happy fantasy. In a gentle universe where all do their parts, Sun, a big yellow smiley face, and crescent Moon take turns in the sky. Sun has been up all day ``with no nap'' but he politely says ``Good night'' to Moon, who's ``just glowing awake.'' Moon plays with lively blue Star until ``night goes by,'' and wishes ``Good morning'' to Sun as he leaps up, arms thrown wide, to greet the new day. Against swirling backgrounds, the artwork is finger-paint simple but radiantly expressive. A sweetly unscientific answer to questions about what the sun and moon do when they're not in the sky. (Picture book. 1-4)
