The Moon is Going to Addy's House by Ida Pearle

After a play date in the city, Addy heads home to the country with her family. Through the long drive, the moon seems to be following them closely - Addy's faithful guardian and friend. The comforting sense that the moon is your own personal companion is universal to childhood, and lda Pearle has depicted it with elegance and lyricism. Her exquisite cut-paper illustrations give the book the feel of a timeless classic, one that children will ask to hear every night at bedtime.


Praise for The Moon is Going to Addy's House * Exquisite, electrifying, soothing, and soporific, brilliant in color and execution, this book beams.

Publishers Weekly, starred review * Dazzling . . . A lovely celebration of a magical celestial companion.


The Moon is Going to Addy s House is visual storytelling at its very best. The emotional journey of the children is beautifully expressed through Ida Pearle s stunning use of collage, color, texture, and movement. Martin Scorsese Ida Pearle is a magician who understands children. She makes her cut-paper collages dance and play and come to life. Her work is pure joy. The moon is going to Addy's house, and you should, too! Brian Selznick, Caldecott Medal Winner Ida Pearle has created a modern classic, a stunningly beautiful book, with a storyline that moves like dance right down to the smallest warm detail.
