Desert SongDesert Song
By Tony Johnston, Illustrated by Ed Young
Paperback, 32 pages
ISBN: 978-1-57805-171-7
Ages: 5-9

When day is done, the sun streaks the desert sky with flame.  Soon the stars come out, and with them, a host of creatures.  Bats spill from a hillside cave; insects seek out the sweet fruit of the saguaro; and a lone coyote sings his haunting song to the moon.

In this lyrical evocation of the desert night, celebrated author Tony Johnston and Caldecott medalist Ed Young offer young readers an unforgettable look at the many plants and animals that thrive in these surprisingly lush and fragile wilderness.

Tony Johnston is the award-winning author of more than one hundred books for young readers.  She lives in San Marino, California.

Ed Young has written and/or illustrated more than seventy-five children's books, including Lon Po Po, winner of the 1990 Caldecott Medal, and two Caldecott honor Books.   He lives in Westchester County, New York.

A picture-book classic available for the first time in paperback.
