KIRKUS REVIEW

Rosie wonders what the moon is made of; her cat purrs, “a saucer of fresh milk.” And off they set to ask their other animal friends what they think. Hen cackles, “an egg and small shining chicks hatch from it to become stars”; Butterfly whispers, “it’s made of sugar”; Dog licks his lips, “a round pat of sweet butter”; Mouse claims, “you’re all wrong, it’s made of white flour that the wind blows to make powdery clouds.” Rosie says “Gram will know,” and they all race back to the house where Gran proves they are all right as she takes each item and mixes them together and bakes moon-shaped cookies. The story is gentle and flavored with elements of other cumulative tales for a young audience. Broad images depict the scenes with bits of collage and patterned textures and Tomie dePaola–style faces. A sweet bedtime tale that’s sure to elicit a cookie request. (recipe included) (Picture book. 3-6)
