Overview

Cosmo loves the moon, and the moon loves Cosmo. They both come to realize though that lots of things depend on the moon - the ocean tides, morning glories, and the dogs, who can't stop howling. A magical book about the power of friendship and the nature of responsibility, Cosmo's moon will charm everyone who's ever been bewitched by the beauty of the moon. "Cosmo loved the moon. He had moon pajamas and a moon nightlight and stars and moons all over his bedroom. Every night, Cosmo's mother and father gave him a hug and a kiss and tucked him into his bed. But just as soon as they closed his bedroom door, he threw aside the covers, ran to the open window, and watched as the golden moon came into the night sky just above the sycamore tree. And as a gentle night breeze blew across the curtains, Cosmo would talk and the moon would listen."

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Cosmo loved the moon. He had moon pajamas and a moon nightlight. Moons were all over his room. When he went to bed at night he would talk to the moon and share all of his dreams and stories. When he would walk in the moonlight, Cosmos thought that the moon was following him. His parents told him it just seemed that way. His grandfather said it was because the moon was so big and so far away. Lately though, it was different. The moon was with him during recess and on his way home from school. Finally even the family noticed that the moon was out at the oddest times. One night three astronomers came to Cosmo's house to find out why, after millions of years, the moon had changed its ways. Cosmo asked the moon why it was following him. Well, Cosmo was a good kind person and the moon enjoyed his company. Then Cosmo explained to the moon that the tides depended on him, the morning glories never bloomed anymore and the dogs were making an awful racket. The moon agreed to go back to his old ways. Endearing pastel illustrations are expressive and memorable. 2003, Sleeping Bear Press, Ages 3 to 8.
