From School Library Journal PreS-Gr 1—A curious cat wonders to whom the moon
belongs. Many stake a claim on the orb, from a bird, a bear, and a wolf to a
tree, a mountain, and the starry sky. In the end, the moon says it shines “for
one and all, and none, throughout eternity.” Told in the “Alouette” verse
form, this is an original tale and a slight departure from Krans’s concept
books ABC Dream and 123 Dream. Full spreads bring the nocturnal world alive,
with the night sky backgrounds in watercolor with a palette that incorporates
the magical colors and movement of the aurora borealis. Each spread focuses on
one particular subject and its connection with the moon. Krans’s signature
intricate pen-and-ink illustrations are larger-than-life, such as an image of
a bear looking straight at readers, the moon dropping behind her as she says
she found the moon first and doesn’t “like to share.” VERDICT Though much of
the story line feels familiar, the art is winsome, and young readers will be
enchanted with the enthralling night world that Krans has created. Recommended
for general purchase.—Danielle Jones, Multnomah County Library, OR Read more
