Review: Finding Monkey Moon

Finding Monkey Moon Finding Monkey Moon by Elizabeth Pulford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Monkey Moon is missing! Michael and his dad head out to the park to see if they can find him.

This picturebook is beautifully rendered in acrylic with subtle details spattered across every spread. The softness and darkness of the illustrations bleed into the soft, sad search in the night. There is a moment when I feel wretched for Michael and want to cry. Poignant and thoughtful, sweet and sleepy.
