    Review text
    Strongly drawn, vividly colored figures with large, expressive eyes light up this simple tale of a child who discovers that her solution to a personal problem has wider consequences. When Marie clips the moon from the sky to repel the monsters that bother her at night, the hospitals begin to fill with cats that have injured themselves in the dark, and rats run amok. But as monsters, it turns out, are afraid of cats too, the King of the Cats proposes a trade, and peace is soon restored. Marie is portrayed as a child who likes to pick cherries, play with her kitty, read funny stories and draw pictures of bunnies; this tale, the first English version of an early story from the author of the Persepolis graphic novels, will irresistibly draw an audience of the same ilk. (Picture book. 5-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
