The Boy and the Blue Moon

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Ashley Crowley. A cat and "his boy" take a walk on the night of a blue moon, when "anything can happen." They come to a lake, climb into a waiting boat, and have a magical adventure--including a trip to the moon. The text is appropriately fanciful and lyrical; the mixed-media illustrations use gouache, graphite sticks, pastels, colored pencils, and a water brush pen to attain deeply saturated blues.
