About the Author

Elinor Lander Horwitz is the author of 14 books for children, young adults, and general audiences and has received several book and journalism awards. Her travel and feature articles on a vast range of subjects appeared for many years in the Washington Post, the Washington Star, The New York Times and a wide range of magazines. Horwitz, who lives in Maryland, has three children and seven grandchildren. Horwitz is the mother of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Tony Horwitz and the mother-in-law of journalist and Pulitzer Prize winning author Geraldine Brooks.
Barbara Cooney (1917-2000) was a renowned children’s book author and illustrator who published more than 100 books. Born in Brooklyn, NY, she lived much of her life in Maine and focused often on the culture and landscape of that state, and her artistic style portrayed a rural New England full of peaceful tranquility. A two-time winner of the Caldecott Medal, she was the recipient of countless other honors and distinctions, and was declared a “Living Treasure of the State of Maine” in 1996. She once said, “Of all the books I have done, Miss Rumphius, Island Boy, and Hattie and the Wild Waves are the closest to my heart. These three are as near as I will ever come to an autobiography.”

This is just a silly fun book with very pretty pictures. I can pretend I bought it to have on hand should my niece and nephew come to visit any time soon, but I really just bought it because it makes me happy."Each night from now on look out the window at the man in the moon through a clean white handkerchief before you get into bed. If he winks his left eye, that's the signal. Start cooking spaghetti and plan to be up all night."
