“A normal, busy night in the big city becomes something beautiful when all the lights go out. A young girl just wants someone to play a game with her, but her family members have other things to do. Disappointed, she sits down to play video games, but is surprised when the power all over the city goes out. The whole city becomes still, and her family finds ways to entertain themselves -- together. This wonderfully illustrated story focuses on spending time together as a family and knowing when it's alright to simply slow down and enjoy life!”
