Pelly and Mr. Harrison Visit the Moon by Lindsay Ward -- ADVISABLE
Ward, Lindsay. Pelly and Mr. Harrison Visit the Moon. Kane Miller [EDC Publishing], 2011. $15.99. PICTURE BOOK. Pelly and her dog Mr. Harrison hop into her bathtub, which becomes a rocket and they fly to the moon. Pelly meets an alien girl who looks a lot like her, just greener. Together they play on the moon, defying gravity and roasting marshmallows with the sun to make moon s’mores. Writer/illustrator Lindsay Ward captures with her illustrations the wild, wonder of a child’s imagination. The illustrations on the moon in particular have a childlike feel with cut out words and yellow lined paper. A great book to read aloud. Pre-K, EL – ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
