From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-This somewhat didactic picture book tells the story of Moonboy, who arrives in the town of Poppygold, tries to make friends, but is feared and ostracized by the townspeople. Granted, he is unusual looking: his body is a rectangular cabinet with two doors, and his globelike head is adorned with an oval mouth that looks like a rubber band and a half-cylinder nose similar to a salt shaker. He throws a party but nobody comes. One boy, Ed, is tempted to but discouraged by his neighbors' warnings that Moonboy's head glows or that his cabinet is full of dust bunnies or worse.... Nevertheless, Ed cautiously ascends the hill to the newcomer's house and discovers what is really in Moonboy's cabinet, and all ends happily. The cartoonlike, stylized illustrations are slightly reminiscent of the work of Henrik Drescher and Maira Kalman, an acquired taste for some children. They are colorful with an emphasis on pastel hues. The book is well designed and has a creative use of typography and layout. The text is suitable for independent reading as well as for reading aloud, but the story is clearly designed to deliver the message, making it read more like a tract than literature. However, it may find a use with adults looking for materials that teach tolerance.

From Publishers Weekly:

The protagonist of this message-driven debut picture book, the Old Man in the Moon's son, yearns to make friends when he makes a visit to Earth. But he scares people: he has a round, glowing head and a torso that resembles a cupboard with two doors. Two neat-freak girls are convinced that there are dust bunnies and even dust elephants inside Moonboy's chest; the baker is sure there is a miraculous baking machine that will put him out of business, and so on. What's in Moonboy's heart turns out to be all the things he loves: a crowded picture shows stars, whales, pets, crowns, toys and more spilling from the opened doors of his chest. This display somehow persuades the humans that Moonboy, at heart, is like them, and they show up at his house with gifts. Slow pacing and an overly allegorical approach obscure the lesson. The art, however, commands interest. Old-fashioned cross-hatching combines with postmodern figures in an arresting mix of classic and contemporary styles. Tidy patterning contains the profusion of elements on each spreadAthey are busy but inviting. Ages 4-9. (June)
