MOONLIGHT by Helen Griffith with illustrations by Laura Dronzek (Greenwillow 2012) is a lush reading experience both in text and pictures. A rabbit settles down to sleep as the moon rises. The moon bathes everything it touches in a buttery yellow light. The text is exquisite, not one extra word or syllable. The painting that illuminate the text are rich in tone and all swathed in the buttery light of the moon. <79>
