Embark on a dreamy, nighttime jaunt with a young boy and the moon. Overcoming a fear of the dark and discovering the world at night lives at the heart of this poetic tale. Includes notes about the moon and plants and animals that thrive in the wee hours.
I’m a big fan of Alison Jay’s illustrations, and Curtis’ text is fabulous. Such an imaginative, whimsical, and quaint story filled to the brim with lovely details, making it perfect for a shorter, lyrical read or an in-depth look at each feature included on each page.
The text in this book is lullaby-esque and perfectly complements Jay’s crackled illustrations that seamlessly combine classic and whimsy. The text has just a touch of nonsense that adds to the dream-like quality and my only issue with this book is that it’s oversize… so much bigger and heavier than it needs to be.
