Editorial Reviews

"It leaves the reader breathless with delight. The Boy Who Loved the Moon is a transcending experience for children and adults."

Midwest Book Review

"Night-black spreads lit with warm, copper-tinged light show the boy diving into the sea for an exquisite pearl, then slaying a dragon for its diamond eye . . . It's clear that Alaimo is a polished craftsman in both mediums."

Publishers Weekly

"An atmospheric version of the author's prizewinning short film, a lad woos and ultimately wins the Moon . . . In video and on paper, the art casts an evocative glow."

Kirkus Review

"Intact are the gorgeous visuals of the film, retaining their golden hues. It really does look like no other illustrated book I can remember ever seeing before; I could probably sit and stare at the pictures for a good few hours. It would not be out of line to call them transcendent, and they are atmospheric in all of the best ways."

KinderLit

"It really does look like no other illustrated book I can remember ever seeing before; I could probably sit and stare at the pictures for a good few hours. It would not be out of line to call them transcendent, and they are atmospheric in all of the best ways."

The Littlest Bookshelf

"A magical hero's story. Moving and inspiring."
