9780744575521: Bringing Down The Moon

"Hot-diggerty! Whatever's that?" exclaims Mole as he burrows out of the ground one night and catches sight of the moon. He thinks it's the most beautiful thing he's ever seen and he wants it, so he sets about trying to pull it down - to no avail. When all of his efforts prove to be in vain, he suddenly notices the moon's in a puddle at his feet and reaches to pick it up...and breaks it. Poor Mole's inconsolable, until he is shown that the moon is not broken at all, but just as beautiful as ever, hanging in the sky like a bright silver coin. And it's not as near as it looks!

About the Author:

Jonathan Emmett studied architecture at Nottingham University and worked as an architect for some time, designing a variety of projects including an art gallery and a theatre. However, he longed to pursue a career as a writer and illustrator, and eventually gave up architecture in 1995. Since then he has had several titles published, including the picture books Fox's New Coat and Dinosaurs After Dark. Bringing Down the Moon is Jonathan's first title for Walker Books. He lives in Nottingham with his wife, Rachel, and their son Max. Vanessa Cabban obtained a first class BA honours degree in Illustration from Brighton University and an MA from the Royal College of Art. She has illustrated the picture books Love is a Handful of Honey, Bertie and Small and the Fast Bike Ride, Bertie and Small and the Brave Sea Journey and Down in the Woods at Sleepytime. Vanessa lives in Northumberland.

From Publishers Weekly:

"Hot diggety!" exclaims plump Mole when he sees the full moon for what is apparently the first time. And indeed, the moon is at its most fetching, glowing in the cobalt-blue night sky "like a bright silver coin." Mole spends the balance of the book engaged in sweetly comic attempts to pry the moon out of the sky. His woodland pals try to warn him off the plan, each one pointing out, "It's not as close as it looks." But that doesn't stop Mole from trying to leap for it, poke it, knock it down with acorns or simply grab it from a high tree branch. Finally, it dawns on him: the moon's beauty lies in the fact that everyone can enjoy it (and besides, Mole now notes sagely, "It's NOT as close as it looks!"). Author and artist seem ideally paired for this well-traveled but sweet tale. In Emmett's unadorned, gentle prose, Mole never seems the least bit avaricious he's just genuinely enchanted by the moon's ethereal beauty. As was true in her Down in the Woods at Sleepytime, Cabban's creatures radiate genuine affection for one another. Keeping the detailing in her settings to a minimum there's just enough to provide a proper stage for Mole's pratfalls Cabban lets the luminescence of the sky and moon hold center stage. It's easy to see why Mole is so thoroughly captivated. Ages 3-6.
