Description

In the forest, there is time to wonder about everything. Red Knit Cap Girl wonders about flowers, butterflies, leaves and clouds. But most of all, she wonders about the Moon. In this gentle, heartwarming story, debut author Naoko Stoop introduces readers to Red Knit Cap Girl and her friend White Bunny on their quest to find a way to talk to the Moon. Though the two search and search the forest, they just can't seem to get close enough to reach the Moon. At long last, with the help of their forest friends and the advice of wise Mr. Owl, Red Knit Cap Girl and White Bunny learn that they need only to wait and listen quietly to make their wish come true. Gorgeously illustrated on wood grain, Red Knit Cap Girl's curiosity, imagination, and joy will captivate the hearts of readers young and old as her journey offers a gentle reminder to appreciate the beauty of the natural world around us.

Review quote

* "Stoop's first picture book...[is] a successful ensemble piece, gorgeously illustrated, in which each character has a part to play." - Publishers Weekly, starred review

An apt choice for bedtime reading, this story affirms the necessity of turning off the light and noise of our busy world to truly recognize the everyday marvels around us. - School Library Journal

A gentle Zen-like parable, with visual and narrative intrigue. - Kirkus Reviews

Soothingly familiar....The text is simple and thoughtful, almost meditative, but it's the charming artwork that runs away with the show. - Booklist

Stoop's dreamy, saturated illustrations, painted on plywood, create a roomy wonderland that welcomes any child's curiosity and sense of adventure. - The New York Times Book Review
