Book Review: 'Moonlight' by Cynthia Rylant

✰✰✰✰½ A little black cat named Moonlight loves to pad around and explore the dark. She loves all the nights, but Halloween night is the very best. Halloween night is a tiny bit different from all the other nights. Pumpkins smile at her, and stars shine down on her. The moon is full and bright, and children are out. There's just something special about Halloween night. Read along with your little ones as Moonlight shares the excitement of the holiday.

The Bottom Line: Kids ages 2 - 7 will love this gentle Halloween-themed tale about the holiday adventures of a little black cat. Sweet's colorful acrylic and colored pencil illustrations are fun and friendly for little ones. This is a tender introduction to Halloween especially for children who may be wary of the tradition. Highly recommended.

Details: Moonlight: The Halloween Cat written by Cynthia Rylant & illustrated by Melissa Sweet. Hardcover picture book published by HarperCollins Publishers in 2003. 32 p. ISBN: 0-06-029712-3
