"A tribute to our only natural satellite, with atmospheric moonlit illustrations of nocturnal creatures....Lyrical and informative." --Kirkus Reviews

"The lush watercolor illustrations are rich with nighttime details with the moon always clearly present....Recommended for larger collections in need of STEAM titles about the moon for younger readers." --School Library Journal

"This poetic look at the varied effects of moonlight draws science-minded attention to a phenomenon more often praised for its beauty than its utility." --Publishers Weekly
