Pretty short story. Nice illustrations but it didn't have anything to really grab me and make me want to read it again.

A little girl's longing to fly is portrayed as a Halloween story. Alison McGhee has written it with the hypnotic rhythms of a sestina. The word repetition, the night-time setting and the ever-present moon, together with Taeeun Yoo's woodcuts in subdued oranges, greens and browns, reminded me of Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd's Goodnight Moon. Highly recommended for preschool to Grade 1, at any time of the year.
