MY REVIEW
'Twas the Night is a unique children's book in the fact that it has absolutely no words whatsoever. It's an actual picture book where readers can make up the story as they go along. The "story" is about a boy in a wheelchair who befriends a bird and dreams of flying, using crutches as wings. He also gets to meet Santa as he's flying in his sleigh.
I found the book to be inspiring. It teaches kids to use their imagination and make the story whatever they want it to be. The pictures are bright, colorful, and engaging, and readers will enjoy being able to create something special over and over again. They say a picture tells a thousand words, and that's what 'Twas the Night aims to do. 

4 stars from me!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

My name is Marin and I was a child a very long time ago. My father
passed away when I was one year old. My mother remarried and I was
raised by my loving (but strict!) grandparents. After losing their son,
they were terrified by the thought of losing their grandson. For this
reason, they didn’t let me play on the street, swim in the nearby pond
or explore the forest with the rest of the kids. This was also the
reason I learned to read and write long before I went to school. My
grandparents surrounded me with books. Books became my imaginary parents
and my fictional friends. Apart from my genetic building blocks, books
also came to be the main component in my development as a creative,
compassionate and competitive individual.



I studied nuclear physics, art, and literature, but I enjoyed art the
most. As a young artist, I was eager to succeed, winning prizes from
various countries. I later became a partner in an advertising agency and
switched my attention to serving clients. My last award was somewhere
in the early nineties – The Best in the West by Corel Draw Corporation.



Oh, a few more boring things about me: I do not drive, I do not drink
carbonated beverages, I have never consumed food from McDonald’s,
Burger King, KFC or any other fast food restaurant, I do not have a
mobile phone, I have never used legal or illegal drugs (except Gravol
when I fly), and I have never visited my GP (much to the disapproval of
my wife).



I read. I read every day. I am what I am today because of books. This publishing house is my little “thank you” to all of them.
