This dreamy bedtime story is gorgeously illustrated by Alison Jay using an oil paint and crackle finish technique showing a little boy’s adventures exploring the peaceful country side after dark. While the illustrations are gorgeous, the verse is not to be ignored, as Carolyn Curtis displays her talent with using fresh uncommon language while making it rhyme elegantly. This book invites the reader to enjoy the moon as a nighttime companion and observe the serenity of nightfall. I Took the Moon for a Walk has become a pre-bed favorite for our family and will continue to be loved. This book is also available as a board book and will be most loved as a read aloud, by both adults and children ages 3 through 8.
