Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A celebration of the magic and wonder of nighttime comes to life in this gorgeous new picture book debut. Wide awake long past his bedtime, a young boy slips ouside his house to join some special friends in a nighttime jubilation. Complete with howls and whoops, they joyously celebrate the mystery and magic of the night, basking in the glow of the moonlight.

Review:

"At midnight, a boy steps outside to howl and dance with animals under a swirling periwinkle sky in debut author/illustrator Carroll's story of moonlight revelry and a boy's ingenuity. When the moon gets stuck in a tree, the boy bravely ascends, feeding it apples and allowing the now 'full' moon to roll out of the tree. There's an overall eerie feel to Carroll's artwork that won't appeal to all tastes--the degree to which the moon and a flower are personified feels especially strange next to the actual boy--but the story has an undeniable pull, as 'They howled at the moon, they howled at life, and they howled with all the things in the night.' Ages 4 — 6. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

James Carroll's "The Boy and the Moon," has just the right mix of magic and excitement to keep little ones engrossed and the not so little ones reading aloud to them have an enjoyable time too.

The illustrations are wonderful, using minimal colors.

Definitely a "must own."
