Product Details


Praise for The Moon is Going to Addy’s House

* “Exquisite, electrifying, soothing, and soporific, brilliant in color and execution, this book beams.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* “Pearle’s portrait of Addy as she holds her pajamas out in front of her has the grace of a Renoir . . . Pearle captures silky motion, conjures up a sense of warmth without reserve, and celebrates children’s intuitive grasp of the natural world.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

* “Dazzling . . . A lovely celebration of a magical celestial companion.”—School Library Journal, starred review

“Swirls and stripes give these illustrations movement andperspective, while intricate, precise cuts mimic back-lit foliage, windblown hair, birds, and architecture. Pearle’s colors are vivid, almost psychedelic, in contrast to realistic human figures with contours straight out of Dick and Jane. A unique, fantastic combination of artistic materials, retro style, and endearing story.”—Booklist

“To my mind, this book is pretty much without parallel. Just amazing.”—A Fuse #8 Production

The Moon is Going to Addy’s House is visual storytelling at its very best. The emotional journey of the children is beautifully expressed through Ida Pearle’s stunning use of collage, color, texture, and movement.”—Martin Scorsese

“Ida Pearle is a magician who understands children. She makes her cut-paper collages dance and play and come to life. Her work is pure joy. The moon is going to Addy’s house, and you should, too!”—Brian Selznick, Caldecott Medal Winner

“Ida Pearle has created a modern classic, a stunningly beautiful book, with a storyline that moves like dance right down to the smallest warm detail.”—Richard McGuire
