Product Details


“A beautiful and important picture book for older readers…this is a book that instantly feels special and appropriate to the subject. A poignant, empathetic and ultimately hopeful book”
—School Library Journal
“In a small-format picture book aimed at a teenage and adult audience, Gliori (Side by Side) uses stark language and somber charcoal-like artwork to reflect on the weight and intensity of depression… By giving depression physical dimension, Gliori diffuses some of its strange, persistent power. “
—Publishers Weekly

Through stunning black and white illustration and deceptively simple text, Gliori provides a fascinating and absorbing portrait of depression and hope in Night Shift, a moving picture book about a young girl haunted by dragons.”
Book Riot

“I cannot recommend this beautiful picture book about depression by Debi Gliori highly enough. It’s a masterpiece.”
David Walliams, bestselling children’s author 

“It is healing to know the words—or have images—to describe hazy but crushing feelings. The words and images can also help others empathize. Whether we need understanding, or to understand, Debi Gliori has given us all a powerful, and beautiful, gift with Night Shift.”
—Jay Asher, author of Thirteen Reasons Why and Piper, his first graphic novel, which he coauthored

“With exquisite brevity, Debi Gliori articulates the struggle of living with depression, in stunning black and white illustrations, punctuated by a single burst of the dragon of depression’s fire. The spread where ‘something shifted’ and the depression lifts, is moving beyond words.”  
 —Cressida Cowell, author and illustrator of the How to Train Your Dragon series
