Willoughby & the Moon

by Greg Foley

Published by Balzer + Bray / HarperCollins, 2010
32 pages
ISBN: 978-0-06-154753-9

Ages 3-7

Before falling asleep each night, Willoughby Smith stares out his bedroom window at the moon. But he’s alarmed one night to discover the moon is no longer shining in the sky. Following a tiny light, Willoughby discovers the moon inside his closet, along with a gigantic snail that has lost his ball and needs Willoughby’s help finding it. The two become instant companions, traveling across the moon’s terrain on a buggy and sailing through the galaxy on a space pod before finally consulting the snail’s map of the moon and discovering the ball in a cave. Greg Foley’s imaginative bedtime story speaks to common childhood fears in a comforting context. His dreamlike fantasy is told through vivid descriptions and striking illustrations in shiny silver, black, and white. Highly Commended, 2011 Charlotte Zolotow Award  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
