Overview
This gentle, poetic bedtime story about a little girl and the friendly moon is perfect for fans of Ezra Jack Keats and Kevin Henkes
After a play date in the city, Addy heads home to the country with her family. And through the long drive, the moon seems to be following them closely Addy s faithful guardian and friend.
The comforting sense that the moon is your own personal companion is universal to childhood, and Ida Pearle has depicted it beautifully through her lyrical text and soft, sleepy cut-paper collage illustrations. This is a book that children will ask to hear every night at bedtime."

Working in collage, Pearle (A Child’s Day: An Alphabet of Play) sets delicately cut, classically proportioned human figures onto backdrops of striking colors and patterns. The effect is breathtaking. Pearle uses marbled paper in shades of pink and orange for the sky at dusk as Addy’s family drives home after a play date in the city, and the moon appears to follow them. “Look way up high,” writes Pearle, as the moon shines over the tall buildings, “and way down low,” as it appears under a bridge. In her car seat, Addy twists and turns to see. “Oh, now I know,” she says, as they drive over the last hill. “The moon was going to my house!” Pearle’s portrait of Addy as she holds her pajamas out in front of her has the grace of a Renoir. A page turn shows her prancing with joy beneath the gigantic moon: “It waited to light up my nighttime dance.” Pearle captures silky motion, conjures up a sense of warmth without reserve, and celebrates children’s intuitive grasp of the natural world. Ages 3–5. Agent: Meredith Kaffel, DeFiore and Company. (July)
