    About the Author

    Michele Lemieux

    Ink on paperThe tangled mass representsouter choices and also the inner architecture that evolves as welive and learn It suggests the many questions we have about life, especially as a teenager A boy juggles stars in the upper right corner.Ms Lemieux has illustrated many books in a variety of mediums She both illustrated and wrote Stormy Night, which has been translated into fourteen languages, won the prestigious Bologna Ragazzi Award, and was made into an animated film that won the Crystal Bear Award at the Berlin Film Festival.When she was a child, Ms Lemieux loved to write stories and draw pictures for them She would make up little booklets that she would give away as Christmas presents Her mother was an artist and always encouraged her But she remembers one class assignment in which students had to write about what they wanted to do when they got older While all the other girls had traditional goals like getting married or becoming a nurse, she felt embarrassed and strange that she was the only one who said that she wanted to write and illustrate.As an adult, two of her favorite artists are Picasso and Saul Steinberg She knows a lot of people who have no goals and complain about their life She lives by a quote from Seneca, If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable If I was stranded alone on an island, I would build something with my hands, even if no one ever saw it.I have a need to create, to be a part of life and leave something behind.

      The French write weird books for kids Okay, not weird Existentially truthful, scary books It s sort of comforting, because it anticipates the universal human fears universal human sufferinge sort of worries kids and adults SHARE So you have scary pictures with statements and questions like I m scared of being abandoned or Will the world come to an end someday or Will I know when it s time to die Maybe the author is quebecoise I don t know anything about the author, really I found this in a thrif [...]

      This review contains graphic, though honest language It will sound harsh but this book can be summed up in a word bullshit Listen I can sympathize with a child uncertain about current and future way of life, everyone can because we ve all been there But no way does someone have, oh, I d guess 175 unique existential thoughts in the course of one stormy night fucked out metaphor And oh good god damn it did have to turn religious in the end didn t it Well take comfort in the book s message, which I [...]

      A simply beautiful book that tells the story of a girl who can t sleep on a stormy night because of the heavy unanswerable questions and thoughts that used to keep me up at night as a child too With only her loving pet dog, she works through these wonderings and fears I found it rather heavy at times, but also very moving and relatable I would recomend this book to be read to or by mature children and anyone who has ever had too many worries to sleep.

      Not really a book that is really appropriate for kids or tweens The book has a fair number of passages questioning the afterlife which is fine particularly if a child has recently had to deal with this but the passages dealing with the nothingness of existence and the possibility there is nothing after death is not something I m personally ready to discuss with my 11 year old and it s not something she has expressed any interest in discussing either.This book was poorly positioned as a children [...]

      Big questions for little people On a stormy night, a little girl wonders about life Where do we come from , her place in the world Is there only one me in the world , death What happens when we die , and other existential questions The images complement the text without being distracting I can understand some will have reservations about this being a children s book, and I don t see myself using this during storytime any time soon, but I really liked it It s dark and impossibly French Canadian.

      I m not quite sure how to describe this book It was a really introspective book from the eyes of a child I found it to be deep, but not cavernous The character s ponderings really stretch the ponderings of the reader.

      Stormy Night by Mich le Lemieux Graphic Novel Self Image Life after Death ImaginationA little girl goes to bed one night to find that there are too many thoughts and questions in her mind for her to settle down This graphic novel is set up where the girl asks a question such as If someone made a hole in the sky, would we see infinity Then on the facing page, there is an illustration of her question or concern The book is thought provoking and really addresses the issues that adolescents are conc [...]

      The black and white starkness of the book compelled me to keep reading to discover the truths behind the words The story about a girl who is up late at night pondering various questions reminded me of my own bedtime routines It was illuminating how questions are always around us and how one answer might spark another question This book is for anyone who has ever felt lost at night because they spend the time thinking about what happened during the day, the possibility of tomorrow and the random [...]

      Graphic Novelgrowing up, insomnia, questionsThis graphic novel is a series of illustrated questions a child asks her dog during a stormy night They are random questions, like If we could switch bodies, would someone choose mine and universal, like Who am I The illustrations were highly stylized, though to my perceptions, less than artistic There was little characterization or attention to detail There lacked significant verisimilitude, in my opinion I was not able to suspend disbelief Although t [...]

      On a stormy night, a little girl can t sleep because she has too many questions swimming in her head, ranging from the contemplative, to the imaginative, to the apprehensive Where does infinity end Is there life on other planets Will I be a hero someday Both the narrative and the illustrations are simple, yet expansive I think I really needed this graphic novel at the age of ten or thereabouts, a way to channel my own anxious, ceaseless mind There are no answers in this book, but it s reassuring [...]

      Contemporary Realistic Fiction Picture books could be Controversial for its questioning of the afterlife and the existence of a higher power.Themes questions, worrying, resolutions.Classroom uses have studw rs write down questions on slips of paper, put in a bucket, and have each student pick someone else s out to respond to Make a display of questions and answers no worries if they re correct or not, no pressure for smart questions Have students discuss the types of things that they worry about [...]

      A wonderful little book written for teenagers or adults Absolutely charming and a good introduction to philosophy for young adults Unfortunately, it seems that when American publishers buy a non English title that is illustrated and has a child as a protagonist, it looks like they don t bother to read the book after it s translated into English They just get lumped into the children s category.

      Michele Lemieux s book features probing statements and questions alongside black and white pictures that pleasantly reminded my of St Exupery s charming artwork Story Night initially seemed just a drawn out picture book, but its delving questions and penetrating artwork drew me into its world of psychological questions so pertinent to the teen experience So approachable, yet honest and full of keen observations.

      I thought this was an interesting little book in which a small girl asks big questions while kept up at night I don t understand the blatent anger that I see in many of these reviews It isn t psuedo intellectual and I don t see why the exploration of these existental question incites so much negativity I think this book is a wonderful way to express to children that these thoughts are normal and rational.

      It is not necessary a book for children only Adults should read it too Reading as an adult, it presents to us thoughts that we are familiar with but many of us either choose to ignore,or deem unimportant, or feel too embarrassing to talk about This book tells us that a child can also be a great philosopher It kinda reminds me of The Little Prince with the illustrations and all.

      I first saw this book in Korean in Seoul what I could not understand the text But the illustration made me very curious, and so I got the English version back to the State The girl in the book asked honest questions that we all want to ask as an adult The illustration has a touch of humor I read it over and over like a child again

      One of my favourite books just re read it for the paper I gave in London and every time it amazes me with it s simple text and wonderful spot illustrations a book that humbles me as it explores the inner world of childhood Update Nov 7 12 taught it today and I love the way students respond to this book one of the students called it inspiring and that was lovely to hear

      This book could have been written about any number of sleepless nights in my childhood or adult life Although this is a juvenile book, it deals with some very real questions and emotions most humans share their entire adult lives even if they only allow themselves to ponder those questions in bed on a stormy night.

      Stormy Night by Michele Lemieux what a powerful thick, packed with philosophical reflection book What do you think about in the middle of the night What makes your brain keep going with curious thoughts This book is certainly for the mature reader I d say 5th grade and up but well worth opening and featuring some pictures and pages

      I found this book in the children s picture book section of the local library It s certainly not a children s book, but it most certainly is an engaging read Lemieux asks existential questions while enduring a sleepless, stormy night, using stark drawings and simple phrases to connect with universal yearnings and fears.

      A wondrous book for children and adults alike Its like having the wind of Critical thinking blow across your face If your child is asking questions, this book shows them that questions are what make the world tick.

      Hybrid between graphic novel and pseudo inspirational Hallmark gift book In the same reflective vein as John Porcellino s Perfect Example A gentle read that plays with lots of larger life questions Perfect for preteens and teens going through moody, questioning phases.

      Strange and existential musings of a child who has gone to bed on a stormy night, accompanied by line drawings Some of the drawings are surreal in a Shel Silverstein way, but I think this book is much too long to have actually been geared at children Give it to a thinker, teen or adult.
