THE MOON KEEPER is Emile, who takes his job very seriously—he shoos away the clouds and bats and keeps the moon company. But what is he to do when the moon starts getting smaller? This gentle lunar tale works well as a quiet bedtime story and as an introduction to the phases of the moon. Patience, readers will find, can be very rewarding. — Hannah DeCamp

Beautifully-illustrated and chock-full of deadpan humor and musical community, Pokko is a magical ode to marching to the beat of your own drum. — Hannah DeCamp

For all kids who march to their own beat, this beautifully illustrated and quietly hilarious book will keep you stomping along on your own unique path. — Julie Jarema
