Gr 3 Up–A young girl named Fae misses her mother and frequently dreams that she is still alive somewhere. Fae is alone in the house, with only a few small creatures to keep her company. She knows that her mother had a strong connection to the moon and thinks that maybe if she climbs into the sky and takes the moon, it will make her mother reappear. But climbing a series of ladders, taking the moon, and hiding it in a chest at home makes everything worse. Suddenly, all kinds of dangerous creatures, from a dragon to a horde of rats, emerge from the darkness to try to get the moon for themselves. It will be up to Fae to survive against the forces of evil, keep the moon safe, and maybe even find her mother. But first, she will have to figure out who her friends and enemies really are, because she will need help keeping the moon safe. This story is illustrated in soft blues, pinks, and purples, and even when the plot takes dangerous turns, the world still looks enchanting.
VERDICT For young readers who enjoy fantastic stories that feel like fables, fairy tales, and bedtime stories all rolled into one.
