When the art director of the New York Times Book Review makes his children's book debut, we fully expect work that is skillful, stunning, and tasteful. Shame on us for not anticipating the fun and games.

For any young counter-cum-vehicle lover, Night Light poses questions in rhyme (1 light, shining bright?) and delivers one word answers (a train) as preschoolers poke the die-cut pages to discover and count the nighttime lights on ten different transportation and service vehicles.
