Julia Noonan's many award-winning books for children include Baby Bat's Lullaby by Jacquelyn Mitchard and When the Moon is High by Alice Schertle. Her own books include The Very Best Doll and Hare and Rabbit: Friends Forever. Ms. Noonan has two children and makes her home in Stony Brook, New York.From Publishers Weekly:
Carpenter's original lullaby (her contribution to 'Til Their Eyes Shine, a recent CD anthology of lullabies by a number of well-known performing artists) makes for pleasant enough bedtime fare, though it's a shame that the musical notation wasn't included?it's clear from the cadence that these verses were meant to be sung, not just read aloud. The words are geared for gently coaxing little ones to sleep: "Who knows where you'll fly away,/ winging past the light of day?/ The man in the moon and the Milky Way/ welcome you to dreamland." Catering to the same pearly taste, Noonan's (Emma & Mommy Talk to God) oil paintings have the retro flavor of tinted photographs of the '30s and '40s. A cherubic blonde girl drifts off to sleep, floating across a pastel night sky with multiracial companions who emerge from blossoming flowers and who snuggle with stuffed animals?it seems almost unnecessary to add that the stars and the moon all wear smiling faces. There's little middle ground here: readers will find this either saccharine or sweet as spun sugar. Ages 3-7.
