Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The author's unique imagination shines through in this easy and quick reading book. All creatures are made of metal in the moon; and although they eat much like on earth, the unlucky ones who are eaten are later recycled to become new creatures. The ultimate cleverness of MoonRivet was an unexpected and fun twist to the story. I specially liked the detailed explanation about the differences of the animals on the earth and the moon, and how everyone would say that there cannot be frogs on the moon. All these differences are clearly illustrated in a side-by-side comparison that further takes the reader deeper into the story. Very enjoyable!
Kids will love this unique, suspenseful tale, and grownups will be intrigued as they read it to kids. Harris Tobias is a gifted, entertaining writer in several genres, and Emma Lathem's clever illustrations are amusing little mind-games for readers of all ages.
