"Janet Heller's book is based on an American Indian legend about the Moon, with characters including celestial objects, such as the Sun and a comet. Native Americans restore a diminished Moon to her rightful place in the heavens, by showing her how much creatures on Earth depend upon her light and enjoy her beauty." -- Marsha Freeman "Science Books & Films" This is a wonderful story with outstanding illustration and usefulness. - Children's Literature The book is lavishly illustrated, by Ben Hodson... Very worthwhile are the instructions at the end of the book on how to observe the Moon, and projects for creating a lunar calendar and directions for illustrating the cycles of the Moon in the night sky. - Science Books & Films Bullied by the sun, the once cheerful moon dwindles until helped by numerous women. Both the folktale-like story and the art are clearly influenced by Native American culture. The mixed-media illustrations are attractive. - Horn Book Guide
