About the Author
Carolyn Curtis has previously worked as an attendant at an animal hospital, a nanny and most recently as a member services co-ordinator at a non-profit parenting organisation. She graduated from Emerson College in Boston, MA with a BS in Mass Communication, and her writing is inspired by the many children she has spent time with. Carolyn loves nature, children, animals, reading and music. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband and two year-old son. Alison Jay lives and works in London. A graduate in illustration from the London College of Printing, Alison has been illustrating children's books for ten years. To create her unique style, she uses alkyd oil paint on paper with a crackling varnish, which gives her illustrations a unique, nostalgic quality. I Took the Moon for a Walk is Alison's first title for Barefoot Books. Her other picture books include ABC, A Child's First Picture Book (2003); A Ladder to the Stars (2003) and The Race (2002).

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous...
The pictures are beautiful, but the story is almost nonexistent, and the choice of words / expressions is really fun strange for it's audience.
Will tactfully donate when the boy isn't looking.
The story itself is just long enough to hold a little one's attention and the prose has a wonderful lyrical quality which really seems to appeal to a young child. My little girl is busily learning to speak at present and has asked to hear the story so often that she can now sit and recite parts of it herself as she looks at the pictures which gives her a lovely sense of achievement.
I can see this book becoming one of those that is kept for years to come to serve as a reminder of these special early years.
