Rosie wonders: What is the moon made of? Cat thinks the moon is a saucer of fresh milk, spilled from the sky into puddles on the ground. Dog thinks it’s a pat of sweet, creamy butter. Butterfly thinks it’s made of sugar: sticky and sparkling and oh, so sweet. But Gran knows best. Using milk, butter, sugar, and other ingredients, she shows Rosie how to bake moonshaped cookies and captures a magical piece of the moon in her very own kitchen.
This classic-in-the-making from Gran’s hearth is sure to inspire family baking and sharing. Sugar cookie recipe included.

*Starred Review* Awakening before dawn, Rosie looks past the cat on her windowsill to the moon and says, "I wonder what it's made of." Cat replies that the moon is a saucer of milk. Rosie concedes that it might be, but she gets dressed, goes outside, and asks several other animals the same question. Hen thinks that the moon is an egg. Butterfly believes it's made of sugar, Dog says "butter," and Mouse is sure that it's made of flour. Each animal joins Rosie on her quest. Finally, they arrive at Rosie's grandmother's house, where Gran combines milk, egg, sugar, butter, and flour to make moon-shaped sugar cookies, satisfying everyone. The mixed-media artwork features Hillenbrand's strong, distinctive lines that define the characters, colors that range in intensity from brilliant to muted, and a rich array of patterned surfaces that make the settings varied and vivid. Though some of the illustrative elements fade into the background, even the shadows here contribute to the storytelling. The story reads aloud well, and in an open-ended conclusion, Rosie asks a new question for readers to explore on their own. The final page offers a recipe for Gran's Sugar Cookie Moons, for those who want to extend the story into the kitchen. Carolyn Phelan
