Moon Rope/Un Lazo a la Lunaby Lois Ehlert
Synopses & Reviews
and#8220;In what may be her handsomest book yet, a Caldecott Honor winner presents a Peruvian folktale concerning a fox and a mole who try to climb a rope of grass to the moon. . . . Using dramatically large format and backgrounds of brilliant color, Ehlert illustrates the simple story with bold, stylized cutouts--often recalling Peruvian motifs--that are dazzling not only in their daring use of vibrant colors but in the simplicity of their design, masterfully incorporating the text in English and Spanish. Excellent source note; altogether outstanding.and#8221;--Kirkus Reviews
A Peruvian folktale told in Spanish and English
Fox wants to go to the moon. Mole does not--at least not until he hears about the huge worms waiting up there for him to eat. So the two of them set off on their adventure, with a little help from a rope of grass and their friends the birds. The bilingual text and bold art showcase Lois Ehlert at her captivating best.
