9781842707142: Eliza and the Moonchild

A small moonchild tires of his white moon surroundings and whizzes down to earth only to find it a shadow-dark place without color. He meets Eliza, who reassures him that the morning will bring color, and together they watch the sun rise while the little girl paints all they see. The moonchild returns home with their picture and a paintbox of his own that he uses to bring color to his world.

About the Author:

Emma Chichester Clark has written and illustrated numerous acclaimed children's books, including I Love You, Blue Kangaroo!; It Was You, Blue Kangaroo; Listen to This; and No More Kissing. She won the Mother Goose Award in 1988.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1—This is the gentle story of the Moonchild, who views Earth from his telescope and yearns to go there. One night, he slips out and zooms through space to visit the colorful orb. At first, he is puzzled because everything is dark and shadowy. But then Moonchild meets Eliza, who helps him to discover and paint the colors they witness as the sun rises. The language of the story is comforting in its simplicity and repetitive nature. The illustrations are soft, round, and appealing, but like the writing, they are understated. Though this is understandable at the beginning when everything is gray-toned, it becomes unimpressive as the children verbally delight in the bright colors coming to life around them. The resulting lush rooftop garden appears overwhelmed by the dark skyscrapers surrounding it and its colors aren't as vivid as those in the paintings that Eliza and the Moonchild create. The concept is an inspired one; although it falls a few shades short of perfection, this book has potential as a soothing bedtime read.—Kim T. Ha, Elkridge Branch Library, MD
