Editorial Reviews

Review

"A very sweet story about friendship and responsibility." -- Louisville, Kentucky Courier-Journal, December 7, 2003

"Truly an imaginative tale, "Cosmo's Moon" is perfect for bedtime and likely to be cherished by many young moon-gazers." -- BookPage, November 2003

About the Author

An Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist currently based at the NBC affiliate in Detroit, Devin Scillian has been writing professionally since 1984. His first children's title, Fibblestax, published in 2000, was called "original, entertaining," by Midwest Book Review. His second book, A is for America: An American Alphabet, released in May 2001, has sold more than 250,000 copies.

More About the Author

When I wrote my first children's story in high school, I don't think I could quite see the day when I would actually become a published author. (I certainly didn't envision myself being invited to read at the White House.) But I do know that from the very first story (which was called, "The Journey to the City" by the way) I was completely taken by the joyous freedom that comes with writing for young readers (even though I was a seriously young WRITER at the time).
It took another ten years or so before I started seriously working at getting published, and another ten years after that before I actually received that magical acceptance from an editor. It was like crossing a far away finish line. And I think that just after "Fibblestax" was published, I thought that I could check that box (the "published author" box) and move on to something else. I don't know that I could see another dozen or so books pouring from me. I mean, I had a "regular" job as anchor of the news at the NBC affiliate in Detroit; it was often more than a fulltime gig. But in children's books, I quickly found a calling.
Shortly after "Fibblestax" was published, my editor called me and told me to think about a book called "A is for America." She didn't say to write it; she just said to think about it.
I couldn't think of anything else.
Having grown up in a military family all over the country and all over the world, and having watched my father head off for three tours of duty in Vietnam, I had a lot of thoughts about America. And in just a few days, I had completed the book. It was odd --- ten years to get "Fibblestax" published, less than a week to get "A is for America" on its way. But as "America" became a national bestseller and I began hearing from teachers all over the country using the book in their classrooms, I developed a new understanding of the power of a picture book. (I'll never forget the morning one of my daughters started yelling for us all to come to the television because the "Today" show had just shown my book sitting beneath the White House Christmas tree.)
Years and many books later, I love to look at the characters who've walked the road with me --- Fibblestax, Cosmo and his moon, Brewster the Rooster, Moses (who led his family to an Oklahoma homestead in "Pappy's Handkerchief") and the others. They've become a part of our family. And I can't wait to meet those who line the road ahead.

This book received a 2004 nomination for the prestigious Newbury Medal awarded annually to the top children's picture book. The glowing colors and happy moon face delight preschool children as well as anyone who loves colorful artwork. The artists did a wonderful job on this.

My son is only 2 years old but he loves this book. We received it yesterday and it's been read multiple times. He has told me both nights that he is going to tell the moon his secrets. The story is very sweet and helps to remind young ones that even though someone goes away they will come back. At this age, it's very important to reinforce that idea.

Our First Grade classes visit the Youth Room of our local library at the start of each school year. We end our tour with this story, which we read in the library's Spaceship, the story time area. It is the perfect book in a perfect setting.

I never get tired of reading the story. The relationship between Cosmo and the moon is very touching.

This is an excellent book, it teaches children a little about the moon and a lot about kindness and friendship. The pictures are lovely, my 2 girls (ages 5 &6) really love Cosmo's Moon.
