Learning about people who work at night time

All Through the Night is a celebration of the people who work for our communities during the night, when most of us are asleep.

Written by Polly Faber, author of the Mango and Banmbang books, and illustrated by Harriet Hobday, it shows the kinds of jobs that need to be done at night time, and the people who do them.

Polly Faber says, "All Through the Night introduces some of the people who work night shifts in a busy city in a variety of different roles. It's narrated by a girl going to bed as her mum goes off to work but her mum's job is not revealed until the end of the book. Once readers know what she does, I hope they'll have fun going back to spot her in each spread."

In this video, Polly Faber tells us more about creating All Through the Night, why we need to celebrate people who work through the night, and she reads from a few pages of the book.
