Book Details

On the night of a blue moon, a boy and his cat set out for a walk and find themselves on a magical adventure. Together they travel through fields of flowers, forests of towering trees, and lakes of deep dark blue. Flying through starry blue skies, they reach the blue moon. But the blue planet, Earth, calls the explorers home. Safely back in bed, the boy wonders—was it only a dream?

In The News

"As magical as The Little Prince; as satisfying as Where the Wild Things Are." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on The Boy and the Blue Moon

"the evocative artwork and cozy wind-down message . . . make this a good choice for bedtime reading" —Booklist, on The Boy and the Blue Moon

"A magical adventure or a dream—listeners to the tale can decide for themselves. A fun and appealing bedtime choice." —School Library Journal on The Boy and the Blue Moon

"Crowley’s use of perspective combined with the glossy paper creates a lot of depth, as the light catches the darkest elements and makes them nearly glow. The fanciful, lyrical text and the boy’s shock of yellow hair make the book a bit reminiscent of The Little Prince" —The Horn Book on The Boy and the Blue Moon
