A lyrical rendering of an evening--the moon, the sea, a mirror, a baby asleep, a window, the moon--and the circle is complete

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From School Library Journal:

A poem that takes a circular form is the text of this book. A moon seen through a window shines on a sea in which swims a fish with eyes like windows, which sees a crow with a tinfoil mirror, which hears an owl with eyes like mirrors, which sees a woman in a car, who has a wallet whose "windows" show a house, a man, and a baby, who goes to the house where the baby is asleep under a mirror, which reflects the window with the moon. Handsome but cold illustrations are appropriately dim for a nighttime poem. Large pillowy blocks of muted color with swirly lines and minimal detail reinforce the soft but almost mysterious mood and focus the eyes on main objects in each painting. However, their somewhat impressionistic style and loose connection to the text seem unsuited to a very young audience. The crow, for example, looks very un-crowlike, and the fish, which the text states is looking "through her watery world," is pictured with her head out of the water. The book will have more appeal for adults than for children, but even adults may wonder why the woman needs to read a map if she is going home. This book lacks the broad appeal of Larrick's When the Dark Comes Dancing (Philomel, 1983). --Louise L. Sherman, Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ #
