Why are moths drawn to light at night? Why do some flowers only bloom under the moon? Are stars really falling from the sky?

Naturalist and artist Peggy Kochanoff answers these questions and more in this illustrated guide to solving nature mysteries after dark. From the author of Silver Birch-nominated Be a Wilderness Detective and Hackmatack-nominated Be a Beach Detective comes a new adventure full of fascinating facts. From tiny cicadas in the grass and skunks digging in your backyard, to the Northern Lights dancing in the sky, Kochanoff shines a light on the intriguing nightlife of Atlantic Canada's nocturnal creatures.

Features a glossary, identification page, and further reading.
