Publisher Comments:

Rabbit waits for the moon.
But the moon takes its time,
so Rabbit hops back to his burrow and goes to sleep.
What happens in the world when Rabbit isnt looking?
Well . . . magic.
And moonlight. . . .
The goats on the mountainside see it.
The deer, birds, and raccoons see it.
Even the fish see it.
And finally, happily,
Rabbit does, too.
Do you?

Review:

"Opalescent moonbeams drench hyacinths, daisies, and dozing animals in this peaceful, Impressionistic tale. Initially, under cloudy skies, a sleepy brown rabbit 'hops into his burrow/ just a little soon/ doesn't see the clouds blow by/ setting free the moon.' While the rabbit naps, 'Moonlight slides like butter' through a woodland and pond, illuminating leaves, branches, lily pads, and flowers. At last the sinuous light 'seeps inside the burrow/ butters Rabbit's dreams' and awakens him from slumber to dance with 'butter on his head!' In gestural brushstrokes, Dronzek (Birds) pictures a forest of midnight blue, violet, and emerald, along with a full moon exuding tendrils of creamy light. Moonlight coats the edges of trees, a resting doe and fawn, a tranquil robin's nest, and lazy trout. Dronzek's self-consciously luscious compositions reinforce Griffith's (Georgia Music) foodie metaphors and recall Georg Hallensleben's paintings for books like And If the Moon Could Talk. Griffith and Dronzek imagine a safe, human-free environment swaddled in unearthly light, inviting readers to taste a delicious summer night. Ages 2 — 5." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
