I see a bat.

I see stars.

I see the moon.

Easy-to-read text and fun pictures follow a dog through the nighttime. Sitting inside his house by his empty bowl, the dog watchesthe nightly sights outside until he falls asleep. When morning comes, his favorite boy comes to fill his empty bowl!

A companion to his 2018 Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book, I See a Cat, Paul Mesiel brings young readers a sleepy adventure they can read all on their own.
