Pulford, Elizabeth Finding Monkey Moon Candlewick, 2015. $15.99 PICTURE BOOK
boy named Michael has lost his toy monkey, named Monkey Moon. His father takes
him in the night back to the park to search for monkey moon.
would relate to being attached to a stuffed animal, but I think that parents
would not want to push the idea that a child must have that animal above all
else. I still remember my friends child screaming for hours when her bunny was lost. I don't think reinforcing that concept it a great thing. The illustrations are dark and depressing.
