      The illustrations are very very gorgeous !! But the story not so much though.

    • Brenna Wesley says:

      I loved the illustrations in this book! Just the detail and emotion put into the illustrations is remarkable and they tell a story on their own.

    • Kathryn says:

      Hum. I really enjoyed certain aspects of this story--the child's bravery in climbing the tree to save the stuck crescent moon, and his clever solution for how to free the moon. A few of the illustrations are just beautiful! But many of them were just not quite to my taste. They seemed a bit spooky instead of happily magical. Which is fine, just not quite what I expected. I can see where some people would absolutely love them, though. So, if you like the cover art and the idea of the story appeal [...]

      The howling, the dancing and the merriment cease when the moon gets stuck in a tree. Of all the friends in the group, it's the little boy who possesses the imagination and ingenuity to solve the problem. What happens when a small boy reaches for the moon, fearlessly climbs the great heights to embrace it with compassion? The metaphors in this book are as delicious as the bright red apples picked from the tree and fed to the moon until it's "full." The cool blue tones and swirls are soothing. The [...]

      Toddlers thru Grade 2. This book had the magic of Where the Wild things are but also reminded me of a Frank Asch title. The illustrations are beautiful and dark. The language is rich but simple. A perfect book to share with a theme about space (phases of the moon) or bedtime.

    • Kim Stroberg says:

      The illustrations are wonderful!

    • Emily says:

      Beautiful images that accompanied this children's book about the night.

    • Melody Costa says:

      Wonderful illustrations! Great for a "Moon" story time

    • Nitza Campos says:

      The illustrations in this book are whimsical,magical, and have a dream-like quality. A gorgeous picture book that will be enjoyed again and again.

    • Laryn says:

      Absolutely gorgeous story and illustrations. Must read.

    • Lara says:

      Interesting little story. Felt a bit abrupt at some points, but I liked the little boy being brave and clever to save the moon. The illustrations were hit or miss. Some were actually a little creepy, but others were very impressive. I guess not my particular taste in illustration style?Might be a good book to fill out a story time on the moon, night, or bedtimes.

    • Stephanie says:

      This book has some of the most beautiful illustrations I have ever seen in a picture book.It is midnight, and one little boy feels the pull to the outside, to the animals and nature, and to the moon. They dance, and they howl, until the moon gets caught in the branches of the tree! The little boy is the only one who can help, and with a clever idea, the moon is free to provide light for the nightly dance again.While the story is very simple, the illustrations are so beautiful that the story take [...]

    • Cassie says:

      This rather unassuming, gentle story took me by surprise. It was midnight. An awake little boy ventures outdoors with an assortment of animals such as a rabbit, dog, and chicken. "They howled at the moon, they howled at life, and they howled with all things in the night." And they danced and danced until the moon got stuck in a tree. The boy and his companions decide to save the moon, in what ends up to be a most unusual way.The story is offbeat - perhaps a little odd, some may not "get it" - bu [...]

      "The Boy and the Moon" by James Christopher Carroll is a wonderfully dreamy book about a boy who, along with his animal friends, "howled at the moon, they howled at life, and they howled with all things in the night." But when the moon gets stuck in a tree, it's up to the boy to save her. How can a little boy save the moon? Carroll's book reminds us that sometimes we can find the bravery and cleverness inside us to do the most amazing things. "The Boy and the Moon" is a quiet, lyrical book, just [...]

      The art inThe Boy and the Moonis sensuous, and yet has a coolness that creates night in all its wonder. Author/illustrator Jim Carroll has created an enhanced ebook sample at:testbleubellelou/It takes a minute to come up. When you see a dotted arrow appear in the lower right, it's time to turn the page. I think the mystical quality of the ebook matches the mystical quality of the images inThe Boy and the Moon.

    • Rebecca Ann says:

      The story was short, lyrical, easy and great for bedtime. The illustrations had an eerie, sleepy beauty sort of like the Starry Night painting, but more ornate. A little boy has to rescue the moon when it gets trapped in an apple tree by feeding it apples until it's so full it falls out. I think some kids would love this and some would find it scary. I'm in the first group. Good for ages 4-8d flags: a little dark/eerie

    • Patricia Powell says:

      What a beautiful book written and illustrated by James Christopher Carroll. The child and the moon are beautiful and the other animals in their nighttime blue green hues are slightly macabre which lends a welcome eerie quality. As the story goes, "dogs cannot climb trees." Well yes, usually, altho I just want to say that my Tree Walker Hound can, but this has nothing to do with this lovely book.

    • Kathryn Watt says:

      I loved this book from first reading. It is magical and strange and the illustrations are just beautiful. They have a quiet, melancholic feel which may not be to everyone's taste but I love the art. This book never left my head and I recently decided to import it to Australia because it is so unique I couldn't live without it!

    • Alyson (Kid Lit Frenzy) says:

      The illustrations in this book are beautiful. I loved the details. The story was sweet. A small boy escapes outside to play at night with the animals. When the moon gets stuck in the tree, only the little boy can help him.

    • Tricia says:

      What a magical bookdreamy illustrations support the story of a little boy who slips into the world of night at midnight. This title has a classic feel to it and would be nicely paired with "Where the Wild Things Are" for an evening storytime or a repeat selection for a child's nighttime story.

    • Clacie says:

      The illustrations were fantastic! The story was good. My kids are obsessed with stories about the moon. They really liked it and this one went in the "good pile", I have a feeling we'll read it again.

    • Clarissa says:

      A charming picture book with wonderful language: "they howled at the moon, they howled at life."The story is slight, the moon become stuck in a tree, and is rescued by the boy, who feeds the moon apples until it becomes full and rolls out of the tree.

    • Rachel says:

      I wasn't that big a fan of the writing. It first gives off a fantastical feel, then switches to more toddler-like attention-grabbing phrasing, then ends more lyical again. I really enjoyed the illustrations though, and that's what made me notice it at the library.

    • Whitaker says:

      A really great book shows us how love is great and worth to die for

    • Krystal says:

      woke tommy up out of almost sleep. we both loved this book.

    • Christen says:

      Sweet yet predictable story but GORGEOUS pictures.

    • Mike says:

      Wondeful illustrations and a cute story, but what I loved most about this book was one line, "They howedled at the moon, they howled at life, and they howled with all things in the night."

    • Shaun says:

      Not so much the story that makes this book as much as the illustrations. Beautiful and unique!

    • Viviane Elbee says:

      The illustrations in this book are very detailed.

    • Nance says:

      The illustrations are beautiful and the extent to which the moon and stuffed animals are personified, make the book come alive. The story line is a little off; but is well carried by illustrations.
