Review:

'I Took the Moon for a Walk is ideal for shared reading, or sampling the pleasures of verse and imaginative language in the classroom, at key stage 1. In a magical adventure, a little boy walks across a rural landscape, the moon beside him, with neighbourhood dogs supplying a choir. Moon's-eye, and worm's-eye perspectives free the viewer to roll, bowl, rise, fall and float effortlessly with the main participants. Surreal and serene, the distinctive illustrations have a folk art quality, with the medium creating crackle-glazed surfaces and sensuous colour. The book includes a reference section about the moon, nocturnal animals and flowers.' --Times Educational Supplement

'When the day has ended and everyone else has gone to sleep, a young boy embarks on a magical adventure, accompanied by his friend, the Moon. Their unusual walk is described in lyrical verse and at the end of the poem, readers can discover all kinds of facts about the passage of the moon through the sky and its influence on our lives.' --Junior Education

'Alison Jay's exquisite oil paint illustrations have a cracked varnish effect that give this book a hauntingly beautiful quality and the detail in the pictures will keep your little ones spellbound for hours.' --NHS Mother & Child

About the Author:

Carolyn Curtis has previously worked at an animal hospital, as a nanny and most recently as a member services coordinator at a non-profit parenting organisation. She graduated from Emerson College in Boston with a BS in Mass Communication, and her writing is inspired in part by the many children she has been fortunate to know. Carolyn loves nature, children, animals, reading and music. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband and son. Alison Jay lives and works in London, England. A graduate in illustration from the London College of Printing, Alison has been illustrating children's books for ten years. To create her unique style, she uses alkyd oil paint on paper with a crackling varnish, which gives her illustrations an antique, nostalgic quality.
