As ​the sun sets and everyone heads indoors, a young boy takes the moon on a stroll around his neighborhood. Curtis’ rhyming text is rich with descriptive language and images: “We tiptoed through grass where the nightcrawlers creep / when the rust-bellied robins have all gone to sleep, / And the Moon called the dew so the grass seemed to weep / When I took the Moon for a walk.” Jay’s surreal, Salvador Dali-like illustrations not only greatly enhance the dreamlike quality of the text but also provide visual images for some of the unfamiliar words and unusual phrasings. The textured cracked-eggshell appearance of the pictures, achieved by applying a crackling varnish over alkyd oil paint, gives the book an aged, fragile look. An ending double-page spread has information about the phases of the moon and nocturnal animals, so kids will know what to look for on their own nighttime adventures.
