Moon Has Written you a Poem (The)
by Jose Jorge Letria
Age Range: 6-8
This picture book from Portugal is an ideal book to read aloud and also for bedtime reading, as the poetic language is highly evocative and touching with a melodic flavour that perfectly suits its purpose. Any young child will fall asleep peaceful and serene after
listening to the rhythmical sound of the words, travelling in their imagination to the fantastic places mentioned in the story: poems full of dreams, words with beautiful sounds, light and magic, all this is to be found here.
"Here we're all dressed up

Little Green Men from Mars".
The surreal illustrations by André Letria are touching and full of mystery and constitute the predominant part of the double-page spread.
