Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Published in England as Where on Earth Is the Moon?, this book was inspired by a postcard of French illustrator Latyk’s work. Expanded into a picture book, his colors and imagery are no less enchanting. The story focuses on a little girl named Luna and her fascination with the moon. She gazes at it every night and wonders where it goes during the day. When she tries to stay awake and follow the moon’s path out of sight, she dreams up scenarios that Latyk imaginatively renders: the moon as a round and shimmering frozen lake (tracked by Luna and her stuffed bunny in a balloon) and the moon as a glowing sea creature (followed by Luna and her bunny in a submarine). Ultimately, she realizes the moon is there all the time, waiting until nighttime to shine in the sky and watch over her. Martin and Latyk have created a bedtime book that invites listeners to dream big dreams. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Abby Nolan

Format: Hardcover
Moon Dreams is the story of Luna, a girl who wonders where the moon goes when she can't see it at night. She imagines all sorts of things; wondering if it goes into the ocean, or behind the mountains, or maybe even gets swallowed up by raging black storm clouds. The illustrations appear digitally produced and use wonderful muted colors that are perfect for a bedtime read. It's been quite some time since I've read a book that was so relaxing! It feeds the imagination, and children will find lots to look at and enjoy when curled up for a sleepy snuggle. The illustrations of the moon are luminous, and while the text drags a time or two, it in no way detracts from what is a perfect bedtime book that is sure to generate lots of requests for repeats. Truly a beautiful book. Recommended.

We actually checked this book out from our local library when my daughter was 18 months old and starting a fascination with the moon. She loved the pictures and enjoyed reciting the sounds of the ocean waves, the owl, and the crickets. I knew when it was time to return the book to the library we'd both miss it immensely, so I bought a copy to have permanently. We still read it often and it's one of the few books I really enjoy reading to her over and over. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is really lyrical without being too "cutesy." Since it's geared toward older children I'm sure it's a book we'll enjoy for years to come.

Lovely, quiet mood and soft, charming illustrations. However, I have to say I'm really irritated by the scientific inaccuracy. The story involves a girl seeing the moon each night and never seeing the moon in the day...and wondering where it goes during the day. I found myself having to explain to my child that this is not true--we see the moon during the daytime on plenty of occasions, and there are also times when it is not in the sky at night. The rather flimsy plot revolves around an inaccuracy that teaches kids the wrong thing about the moon. I'm not willing to suspend disbelief on this one.
