Come Back, Moon, by David Kherdian, Illustrated by Nonny Hogrogian
What happens when the moon goes missing?
The moon is full and bright in the sky. So full, and so bright, that Bear can’t sleep!
So he steals the moon from the sky and hides it away. But the other animals miss the beautiful, glowing moon…and they set out to get it back in this tender story with luminous watercolor illustrations.
“Within plainspoken text and dialogue, Kherdian weaves a folkloric motif...Hogrogian subtly characterizes the animals’ emotions and responses without anthropomorphizing them unduly.... Charming.” - Kirkus Reviews
“The action is low-key, almost tableau-like, and never less than compelling.” - Publishers Weekly
