About the Author
Tracey Hecht has written, directed, and produced for film. The American Booksellers Association chose the first book in her critically acclaimed middle grade series, The Nocturnals: The Mysterious Abductions, as a Kids' Indie Next List pick. In addition, her Grow & Read early reader book, The Chestnut Challenge, was given a Mom's Choice Gold Award. In partnership with the New York Public Library, Tracey created a Read Aloud Writing Program that she has since conducted--both in person and virtually--in over 100 schools, libraries, and bookstores across the country. Other books in the Nocturnals middle grade series include The Ominous Eye, The Fallen Star, and The Hidden Kingdom. Tracey currently splits her time between New York City and Oquossoc, Maine, with her husband and four children.
Reviews for The Moonlight Meeting"This banter-filled early reader describes the initial meeting between shy Tobin the pangolin, brash Bismark the sugar glider, and kindhearted Dawn the fox...the pared-down narration and dialogue quickly establish their personalities...Hecht successfully set the stage for more adventurous outings down the road."--Publishers Weekly "Physical characteristics, personality quirks, and the beginnings of their mutual trust and friendship are aptly portrayed through both words and pictures. A few 'Nocturnals Fun Facts' at the end should help with any factual queries. Whether listening, reading along, or launching individual attempts, satisfied readers will be ready and waiting for the next installment."--Booklist "An entertaining story of friendship and sharing, and educates us about those who are different from us."--Story Monsters Inc. Praise for The Nocturnals Grow & Read Early Reader Series "Beginning readers will enjoy this tale and will cheer on the threesome who defeat a bully by using their words."--School Library Journal "This tale uses plenty of important vocabulary words, easily decipherable within context, while showing how friends who stick together can facedown even the meanest bully."--Booklist "The series addresses bullying and empathy in an easy, accessible way, and the books are meant to be read aloud."--New York Post
