Description

Again, publisher description says: “illustrated in otherworldly mixed-media” and it is otherworldly for certain. Readers will appreciate the fun and a bit different story plus enjoy looking through the pages to see the wide variety of materials used in the illustrations.

Translated from Korean with exceptional, detailed 3D collage illustrations, this is a reimagining of the East Asian tale of the rabbit in the moon. Read the note at the very beginning of the book (which could also start a good discussion with kids before reading) to make sense of the ending. The children could describe the weather outside at the moment and compare it to the weather in the story. The image of the tenants enjoying their moon pops, which also adorns the book’s cover, shows the creatures gazing incredulously at their gleaming treats in the dark of night, their faces illuminated by their moon pops’ light.It's a Korean folktale, but I don;t think it can be too old as freezers, air conditioning haven'[t been around too long.

That’s when the two moon rabbits showed up and Granny had to figure out how to rebuild their moon home using the last drops of the moon. I love that there are main stream books available for children that teach them about folklore from other cultures. Moon Rabbit is left homeless with the moon melted but Granny and makes a new moon for the rabbit from drops she saves.It’s wonderful to walk down the Lower Elementary hallway and see the brightly colored art the students did in response to their summer book, Moon Pops by Heena Baek. I loved Doerr’s earlier novel, All the Light We Cannot See, but had not gravitated to this one – until now. Photography, lighting (both overall and within the scenes), and set-building are used to great effect in this unique story that will thrill Wes Anderson or stop-animation fans to no end.
