Moonlight: The Halloween Cat (Hardcover)
Softly padding through the darkness, Moonlight explores the world on her favorite night, Halloween.
The town and countryside glow with shining stars. The wide yellow moon lights pumpkins, racoons, and children out having fun. . . .
Told in eloquently simple, lyrical words, with dazzling, luminous paintings, Moonlight evokes not just the excitement of Halloween, but something more -- the reassuring warmth and friendliness that is a special part of this special night.
