Reviews

"A close encounter of the best kind."--Kirkus Reviews

β˜… "[The] sly but easy-to-follow linear narrative is told through a well-paced mix of panels (circular, horizontal, and vertical), full-pages, and double-page spreads, with pops of color (the yellow of the school bus-like space-ship, the color-filled crayon box) that are highly effective. The moon creatures, despite their minimalist features, are very expressive, as is the child--whose face remains hidden behind a space-mask until the last page."--The Horn Book, Starred Review

β˜… "Hare's picture book debut is a winner. . . . His gray yet surprisingly detailed moonscape is both the setting and a character in its own right; his depiction of the aliens as gray humanoids amazed by color is genius. A beautifully done wordless story about a field trip to the moon with a sweet and funny alien encounter; what's not to like?" --School Library Journal, Starred Review

"A perfectly paced paean to imagination, Hare's auspicious debut presents a world where a yellow crayon box shines like a beacon."--Booklist


"A clever and noteworthy tale of lunar adventure."--Publishers Weekly
