Summary, etc.:
"After dark, when we are thinking about going to sleep, many amazing animals are just waking up. What do they do in the dark of the night? *Bats fly out of caves, zigzagging into the sky. * Wolf pups wrestle, growl, and romp. *Tarantulas emerge from their lairs--leg by leg by leg. *Fireflies flit through lawns, their flashes lighting up the dark. With this engaging collection of twenty-one poems, learn about the hidden lives of these nocturnal animals (and many more.) You'll be surprised to find out what happens when we're asleep and animals have the quiet night to themselves."--Jacket flap
