Grant Snider is an orthodontist by day and an author and artist of comics and picture books by night. He lives in Wichita Kansas.

“’Look closer,’ this gentle bedtime book encourages. While nighttime might seem to be only black and white, there is color to see everywhere… An orthodontist by day and a cartoonist by night, [Grant Snider] clearly understands the promise that lies on the other side of sunset.”
The New York Times
 

“[A]n evocative picture book that urges young viewers to ‘look closer’ at the night… And though it is the striking art that may rivet a child audience’s attention, the text, with its soothing rhythms and strong near-rhymes full of rich long vowels (‘road’ / ‘glow’), is an equal partner.”
