The Moon

Robert Louis Stevenson; Pictures by Tracey Campbell Pearson

Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)

So begins Robert Louis Stevenson's famous poem The Moon. Now Tracey Campbell Pearson takes readers on an illustrative late-night adventure set to this text in which we follow not only the moon as it shines on the creatures of the night, but also a father and his young son out on a late-night romp through quiet streets and fields, in a boat around a moonlit bay, and home again to sleep in their cozy house.
 
Detailed, luminous watercolor-and-ink paintings capture the magic of nighttime, and its many nocturnal creatures, as well as the special love between a father and son.
