- 1972 Caldecott Medal Honor Book
In this Caldecot Honor folktale, an old woman named Hildilid lives high in the hills and hates the night above all things. She tries capturing the night in a sack, tying it up with vines, shaking her fist at it, but the night takes no notice--until it disappears. Full color.
