Enchanting scenes of a moonlit night grace the pages of this ode to moon's spell and splendor. Share the magic with a tomcat yowling atop a fence, newly hatched turtles scuttling out to sea, a dancer performing a rooftop recital, and a young mother rocking her baby while bathed in moonlight.

An acclaimed author and artist offer something different for bedtime-an inspiring look at how the moon captivates our minds and hearts.

Baker & Taylor
From the author of When Mama Comes Home Tonight, a gentle picture book provides a simple story about the wonders that come with the magic of the moonlight, as tomcats sing, turtles are hatched, and babies are rocked to sleep in their mother's arms.

& Taylor

The moon lights the night for farmers, mothers and babies, wolves, and more.
