Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Everyone has an opinion about the question Jonas asks his grandmother as he and Nana take a treasured walk before bedtime. The squirrel sees lumps and bumps on the moon, so it answers "Nuts, of course!" The cow sees white, so she says "Milk and cream." The robin and the bullfrog are each sure it's worms (for the early bird) and flies (which are plentiful at night), and the bear votes for golden honey. Then Jonas and Nana, who is refreshingly depicted as a slim, gray-mopped jeans-and-shirt-and-tennis-shoe type (but--unrealistically--with nary a wrinkle in sight), share their opinions before the question is passed onto the young reader to ponder. The illustrations are wacky and charming and cleverly innovative and end with the usual Boy-Tucked-Into-Bed dusky toned pages. Happily, there is no reference to cheese, so we're all free to continue to speculate on the eternal question. 1997, Bantam Doubleday Dell, Ages 3 to 7, $14.95 and $6.99.

When Jonas and his grandmother take a walk through the nighttime woods, they can't help but wonder what the moon is made of. A host of talking animals offers their opinions in this gentle fantasy, and their answers are sure to delight and surprise. From the cow who thinks that the moon is full of "milk and cream", to the firefly, who is sure that the moon is pure light, the suggestions and the exuberant illustrations which accompany them are sure to catch the imagination of any child. The combination of Moore's delightful watercolors with Oppenheim's often lyrical text makes this a sure bet for bedtime.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1--A gentle story of a magical moment shared by a grandmother and her grandson, Jonas. On a nighttime stroll beneath the full moon, the boy wonders aloud what the full moon is full of. A red squirrel votes for nuts, a cow for milk and cream, a robin for worms, a frog for flies, a bear cub for honey, and a firefly for light. Quietly yet effectively, the tale builds to the final, most important question: What does Jonas think the full moon is full of? Moore's watercolor and colored-pencil drawings realistically capture the peace of a quiet walk in the moonlight as they winsomely illustrate the youngster's imaginary conversations with the various animals. They extend the story with fanciful depictions of a sky full of floating cows, a frog resting his feet on Saturn's rings, milk and cream pouring from a trap door in the moon, and the bright green striped pajama-clad boy enjoying the zero gravity of outer space. The large format and full-page illustrations make this an excellent choice for storytimes.--Peggy Morgan, The Library Network, Southgate, MI
