Red Knit Cap Girl by Naoko Stoop

Red Knit Cap Girl lives in a lovely enchanted forest. She has plenty of time to wonder about everything including the moon. She wants to reach the moon but doesn't know how. After a consultation with an owl, Red Knit Cap Girl and her animal friends plan a party for the moon.

What I thought: This book is definitely original. I wish I'd had it for the summer reading program. It would have fit in perfectly with my moon themed story time. The illustrations are wonderful. I love how the grain of the plywood comes through the paint. My favorite illustration is Red Knit Cap Girl and the moon (last page).
