My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The night air breathed a wondrous sound as “A hundred thousand tiny bells were ringing out a song that no one had ever heard before,” beckoning a boy and his cat as they venture off into the forest on one irresistibly enchanting evening.
The Boy and the Blue Moon takes the reader on a magnificent journey with a curious boy and his cat that is completely magical. I was in every way enamored by the brilliant blues used by illustrator Ashley Crowley. The illustrations are themselves spellbinding. They dazzled my imagination. This is definitely a book I will be purchasing for my K-5 library!
