Book Description

La Luna is the timeless fable of a young boy who is coming of age in the most peculiar of circumstances. Tonight is the very first time his Papa and Grandpa are taking him to work. In an old wooden boat they row far out to sea, and with no land in sight, they stop and wait. A big surprise is in store for the little boy as he discovers his family's most unusual line of work. Should he follow the example of his Papa, or his Grandpa? Or will he be able to find his own way? This charming picture book is filled with incredible illustrations, and its unique story based on the Disney*Pixar short film is sure to delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable Story February 17, 2015
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I fell in love with this story when I saw it in theaters before Wall-E, and knew it was something I would want to pass on to my kids someday. It's such a cute and imaginative way to explain why the moon changes shape every night! The book itself is high quality, the illustrations are pretty, and although I still think the film is better, the written story is still very sweet. Would make a great gift for a new mom!

5.0 out of 5 stars La Luna - Wonderful Book for Everyone October 6, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having seen La Luna, the short animation, prior to Brave, I was just amazed. The next day I hopped on Amazon and ordered the book. You will love this book both as a reader and a listener. Wonderful and magical all in a short little book.

3.0 out of 5 stars The film short is so much better March 3, 2013
By Teacher
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My son and I loved the film short when we saw it in the theatre, so as soon as I saw a book, I ordered it. The film is so much better though because the artwork just really doesn't pop in the book like it does on screen. Also, the book has text explaining the story, which does not happen in the film. We just get sound, and I think that was much more effective. When I read the book to my son, I can hear in my head the sound of the stars moving, and it's lost on the book. A cute book, but I wouldn't have bought it if I previewed it first.
