When the Moon Forgot by Jimmy Liao, English text adapted by Sarah L. Thomson [in Bloomsbury Review]

When the Moon ForgotWhen the moon fails to rise one night – and continues to stay away – many moons are manufactured so everyone can have one of their own. But only one boy carefully nurtures his moon which beams with the boy’s unwavering love, until eventually, the moon grows independent to shine once more. As always, Liao’s wistful illustrations are perfect.

Is it me … or does that adorable little boy have a not-so-vague resemblance to the little hero of Where the Wild Things Are? … which is apparently coming to a theater near you!
