At Night We Fly

Hannah Arnesen

This is Anna.
During the day she’s slow.
She hurries in her boots and rescues worms along the way.
But at night…
At night she is a lion queen, running barefoot in the savannah, faster than the sun.

During the day, the children in the neighborhood are ordinary kids. They live in apartment blocks, listen to the radio with grandpa or pick their nose, they are bored and want out. But at night, they do everything they dream of doing. Someone stands on the roof and plays the trumpet, another one hands out hot dogs to all the children and is friends with everybody in the whole city.

An imaginative, accessible and fun picture book for children who dream of freedom and self-determination, and for the adults who might need to remind themselves to dream a bit more. What would you do at night, if you could? Hannah Arnesen is a visual artist. She studies picture book storytelling at HDK, the School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg and works in a bookstore. At Night We Fly is her debut.
