John Thacher Hurd (born March 6, 1949) is an American artist and the creator of children's picture books including Mama Don't Allow and Art Dog. Thacher Hurd was born in Burlington, Vermont.

He has referred in an interview to the "wonderful aura of creativity" surrounding his father and the Vermont farm that was their home.

Except that Hurd's awkward, childlike paintings are subdued and quiet as well, the book seems patterned after Goodnight Moon-but this is devoid of the mystery that draws children back to Goodnight Moon, and instead of the older book's hypnotic imagery Hurd provides coy notions (""the clock is talking to itself""),:poetical burbles.

My children and I love this gentle book. My little boy said it made the bad dreams go away. Ticking clocks, quiet rivers and other soothing images help the little ones to sleep.

A nice book to read at bedtime. The words are quiet like a lullaby. Mom and Dad are sitting quiety by the fire, the clock is ticking softly, the river is whispering to its banks. Everything is set to lull your child to sleep. The only odd page is the seamonster resting at the bottom of the ocean. That seems inconsistent with the peaceful images throughout the rest of the book. But that is easily edited out while reading aloud. The illustrations are nice watercolors in deep evening colors to match the mood of the story.

This was one of my favorite books to read to--and later, be read by--my son.
And he liked it, too. Calming illustrations, and prose that paints a poetically peaceful picture.
A great end-of-the-day read. Love the ending.
Let's not overanalyze it, it's simply short and sweet. I liked it a lot and think you will, too. Relax with The Quiet Evening.
