Gr 2-4-A splendid pourquoi tale about the delicate celestial balance of time. Envious of the sun's brilliant rays that shower the townspeople's celebrations, the moon decides to create her own enchanted fiesta. The people come out for the party and stay until daybreak, but are then too tired to work in the fields. The moon promises to stay in the evening sky, except on those few occasions when she feels like celebrating and can be seen in the morning sky. Elegant, full-page watercolor and acrylic paintings capture the colorful revelries of traditional Mexican Oaxacan culture, including the magnificent procession of giant papier-mache dolls, paper lanterns, and the savory taste of tamales. An excellent read-aloud introduction to the famous fiestas of Mexico.-Selene S. Vasquez, Orange Brook Elementary School, Hollywood, FL
