About the Author

Few writers have been as attuned to the concerns and emotions of childhood as Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). A graduate of Hollins College and the progressive Bank Street College of Education, she combined her literary aspirations with the study of child development. Her unique ability to see the world through a child's eyes is unequaled. Her many classic books continue to delight thousands of young listeners and readers year after year.


Muy pocos escritores de literatura infantil han logrado captar las emociones e inquietudes de la niñez como Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). Sus numerosos y ya clásicos libros y grabaciones continúan deleitando a lectores y oyentes de todas las edades.



Clement Hurd (1908–1988) is best known for illustrating Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny, the classic picture books by Margaret Wise Brown. He studied painting in Paris with Fernand Léger and others in the early 1930s. After his return to the United States in 1935, he began to work in children's books. He illustrated more than one hundred books, many of them with his wife, Edith Thacher Hurd, including the Johnny Lion books, The Day the Sun Danced, and The Merry Chase. A native of New York City, he lived most of his life in Vermont and California.

Clement Hurd (1908–1988) se graduó de Yale University. Estudió pintura en París en los años 1930 con Fernand Léger, entre otros. Allí fue donde desarrolló su estilo característico, compuesto de colores de fuerte contraste. Hurd estuvo casado con la escritora Edith Thacher Hurd, con quien también creó muchos libros que se convirtieron en favoritos de los niños.

More About the Author

Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny. Even though she died over 45 years ago, her books still sell very well. Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading. She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them. She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn't the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper. Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else - a writer of songs and nonsense.

I really wish the product descriptions were more accurate. These are tiny pocket books. I couldn't really read these books,the letters are so tiny. A waste of money. PLEASE BE MORE CLEAR ABOUT THE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION!!!

This is a VERY MINIATURE set of these three books (think dollhouse coffee table book size)! It really makes NO sense to make books this small - especially for the age child who would enjoy these stories. Very disappointed, especially since there is NO indication in the description that you are purchasing a teeny tiny book set. In fact the only chance of realizing that you are receiving such tiny books is in the product dimensions at the bottom of the page - and even they are incorrect! The books are 3 inches x 2 3/4 inches. Do not waste your money!!!

Be aware that this is just one book with the three stories printed inside. It is not three separately bound books. Of course we love these stories, but I would have preferred three individually-bound books rather than this version.

It is not until you go all the way down to the Product Detail that you see the size of this MINI library. The books are itty-bitty (think stocking stuffer or purse size). This should be made clear at the beginning of the product description (in the title). Very disappointing and agree with another writer: a waste of money.

I wish to add my voice to those of [many] other reviewers: the actual physical dimensions of this product were not *clearly* emphasized in the product description. Generally, when one purchases a book through Amazon, one expects it to be...book-sized! [Pocket paperback, standard hardback, coffee table, what have you.] When the books arrived - and only then - I discovered they were tiny, maybe 3x3 inches. Upon investigation of the original product listing, I finally discovered a listing of the dimensions - in *one* place: the "small print" of the product details...published way down the page. [It is also worth noting that the published dimensions of these books appear to be somewhat greater than their actual size.]

Well - technically, the dimensions were included in the product listing. However - I've been an Amazon Prime member for years now; I buy a lot of books through Amazon and I don't recall ever making any special effort to confirm the size of a book I was purchasing. If I am looking for something very specific, I try to shop by ISBN number...but the truth is, much of my book shopping on Amazon is done on a "browse and buy" basis, to wit - I look up a few authors I like [or titles of interest] and throw what I want in my cart without reading anything more than the description of the books' *content*. Until now, that approach has worked fine. I guess those days are over; If I choose to remain an Amazon customer at all, I will never again purchase *anything* without reading every last bit of the "fine print".

In my estimation, the listing for this product amounts to nothing more than deliberate advertising fraud.

Format: Hardcover
Over the Moon is a collection of three books in one. Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny and My World are all written by late children's book author Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by late artist Clement Hurd.

Goodnight Moon is celebrating its 60th anniversary. A sweet little bunny tells everything in his room goodnight as he settles in for the night.

A red balloon. Kittens. Mittens. A comb. A brush. The bunny describes his room and wishes all of his daytime play things goodnight. The illustrations also describe the room, giving parents the perfect opportunity to show each item to their children as they read.

The Runaway Bunny features a boy bunny who wants to run away from home. He describes all of the many adventures he will take to leave the comfort of his home and mommy.

But mommy bunny isn't about to let her baby boy run away. She describes the many adventures she will take to bring her bunny boy back home.

My World is a fun story full of rhymes. Comparisons like mother's chair versus my chair show big differences in adult sizes and child sizes.

All stories are perfect bedtime tales for parents reading to young children. They're also good starter stories for children learning how to read.

The books are 3x3 and the print is the size of an ant. This was not at all what I expected to receive and would never give this to any of my friends' children as a gift. Very disappointing.

A terrific book for very young people, but the copy I received was no larger than 2"x2" - how can anyone read from such a tiny book?
