Synopsis

Moon Forest by Patricia MacCarthy

In Moon Forest, night is coming. The moon rises in the forest, and illuminates the coming and going of nocturnal creatures foraging in a temperate forest wilderness. The fox must find food for its young. The deer are stampeding! And meanwhile the hare, the owl, the badger and the bats are out and about. All through the night the fox is prowling, hunting. The rabbit manages to escape, but as dawn breaks the fox spots a flock of geese. Maybe this is his last chance to find a meal to take back to his cubs...

Reviews

'Lyrical text swirls around...beautiful pictures.' 'If ever a book of nature was to be both informative and exciting, this is it. ... A magnificent book for keeps.' 'This exquisite picture book is a poetic tribute to the beauty of nature... MacCarthy expertly uses a palette of greys, blues, greens, browns, silvers and purples to create a symphony of movement... This book will make a pleasant addition to school library shelves. It is a worthy candidate for a Greenaway shortlist. Students will enjoy the illustrations and the rhythmical sounds of alliteration, assonance and onomatopoeia.' '
