"Can you imagine a world without night? No moonbeams? No stars? No time to rest in your bed? This story tells how night came to Brazil. Celebrating the rhythm of evening and morning, shadow and light, rest and activity, this lyrical fairytale is the story of the ancient African sea goddess Iemanji whose daughter marries one of the sons of the earth people who live in eternal daylight in Brazil. When her daughter longs to rest her eyes in the cool shadows of evening, Iemanji sends her the gift of darkness. Strong, intense, tropically colored illustrations vibrate with energy in this folktale that demonstrates the African connection to Brazil. An author's note explains the slavery connection between the countries and describes how a religion called Candomble (a complex set of African beliefs) is practiced in the northeast of Brazil. Mary-Joan Gerson has written four books for children. Her children's writing career began when she and her husband served with the Peace Corps from 1965-67 in Nigeria. Her books focus on how other cultures explain the world -- they are all what is referred to in folklore as ""creation tales."" Dr. Gerson is now a clinical professor of psychology at New York University, where she directs a training program in family therapy and teaches and does research in psychoanalytic development. Carla Golembe studied painting and printmaking in college and graduate school. She began illustrating children's books in 1992. Because her artwork has a tropical style, she illustrated a number of folktales from Africa, Latin America and Hawaii. "
