Tracey Campbell Pearson | The Moon, written by Robert Louis Stevenson, illustrated by Tracey Campbell Pearson
The Moon, written by Robert Louis Stevenson, illustrated by Tracey Campbell Pearson, Published by, Farrar, Straus & Giroux Fall 2006. Hardcover ISBN 0-374-35046-9 SUMMARY: The moon has a face like the clock in the hall; She shines on thieves on the garden wall, On streets and fields and harbour quays, And birdies asleep in the forks of the trees. So begins Robert Louis Stevenson's famous tribute to the moon. This night the moon shines not only on the creatures of the night, but also down upon a father and child. The moon watches over them every step of the way-- from when Dad wakes his son to take him outside, to their boat trip around a cove and back home again, where Mom, with the now-sleeping baby, welcomes them home from their journey. Detailed, luminous watercolor-and-ink illustrations capture the magic of nightime, and its many nocturnal creatures, as well as the special love between father and son.

SUMMARY

The moon has a face like the clock in the hall;
She shines on thieves on the garden wall,
On streets and fields and harbour quays,
And birdies asleep in the forks of the trees.

So begins Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous tribute to the moon. This night the moon shines not only on the creatures of the night, but also down upon a father and child. The moon watches over them every step of the way– from when Dad wakes his son to take him outside, to their boat trip around a cove and back home again, where Mom, with the now-sleeping baby, welcomes them home from their journey.
