What's Flashlight Night About

Publisher Summary

Flashlight Night is an ode to the power of imagination and the wonder of books. Three children use a flashlight to light a path around their backyard at night; in the flashlight’s beam another world looms. Our heroes encounter spooky woods, a fearsome tiger, a time-forgotten tomb, an Egyptian god, a sword-fighting pirate, and a giant squid. With ingenuity, they vanquish all, then return to their tree house—braver, closer, and wiser than before—to read the books that inspired their adventure.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

Delightfully clever illustrations simultaneously show “reality” in the dark of the night and the world of the children’s imagination as illuminated by the flashlight in a way that highlights the power and joy of reading!

Who Wrote Flashlight Night

Matt Forrest Esenwine

At various times throughout my life, I’ve been an actor, copy writer, voice talent, DJ, country dance instructor, cook, ice cream scooper, and photography sales dude…and through it all, I could never figure out how to make a living doing any of this.

So in 2012, I left full-time employment in radio broadcasting and decided to work from home, doing voiceovers for commercials and videos. This would allow me to develop my children’s writing while being a stay-at-home dad. Since then, I’ve had two picture books published, another on the way, and nearly 30 poems published in various children’s anthologies, journals, and magazines!

Don’t give up your dreams, folks!
