About the Author

James Proimos has yet to rescue a small human from a river, but he has written and illustrated many books for them. James splits his time between Los Angeles and Middleburg, Virginia.

Zoey Abbott is a graduate of Smith College. She spent four years working and painting in Japan. She now lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, their two kids, and a big dog named Carrots. This is her third book.


[In Over the Moon] a girl raised by wolves sets out on her own. In addition to being beautiful, the pictures are often hilarious. The text is stark and lyrical, and Proimos is particularly adept at using poetic devices like repetition to make the words sing. A weird and wonderful tale."--Kirkus Reviews

"Abbott's soft, cartoon illustrations perfectly match and set the tone. [Over the Moon] is a zany twist on an age-old tale of growing up and realizing that family means the ones who choose, love, and raise you."-School Library Journal

"Saying someone must have been raised by wolves is usually a slam. In this engrossing picture book, however, it's a way of showing that love is what counts in any family, no matter how nontraditional."-Booklist
