It's not very often you can pick up a picture that portrays real fears that younger kids deal with, on a level they'll get. Martin on the Moon is a book that tackles that perfectly, and makes it easy for kids to understand what Martin is doing and why. Huge kudos to the illustrator, Luc for being able to not only capture Martin, he does a great job at showing us Martin in the present and Martin in his day dream. Luc makes it incredibly easy for younger readers to understand what's going on. I also liked that fact that the story illustrates Martin's teacher as a kind teacher who seems to understand what's he going through and what he's doing with out having to ask him nor does she point it out in front of everyone else. In stead she asks him what he's doing and gives him that assuring "I know what you're doing" smile.
I enjoyed this book. It's a good read, with a good story line, great illustrations and a catchy color scheme kids will love.
