She does find a nightgown, connected at the beginning with a young girl, but things don't go s From a long while ago, another moon book with gorgeous illustrations by David McPhail.

The moon laments that poets have praised her and men have worshiped her, but no one has ever given her what she really wants-a nightgown such as people on earth wear when they sleep under warm featherbeds at night. Children will love this imaginative explanation of the lunar cycle.

I was so happy I found this book that I read to my daughter every night when she was little, now I get to read it to my granddaughter

Very pleased with purchase. Lovely book in excellent condition,

A sweet story that I find very charming. I just ordered it because I want to own a copy. This book is great for preschool or other teachers of young children who need something with a moon or celestial theme.

The story line is clever and refreshing, and very whimsical. My favorite part of the book is when the children all over the world look up in the sky and can't find the moon. You see them all wistfully calling the moon in their own languages -- nothing will be right again until the moon reappears. This multilingual aspect adds a dimension to a truly memorable book.

Inside in very good condition. It was not, however, listed as having a plastic coat on the cover, or as having been a library book.

The moon goes shopping, falls in love with a nightgown that prohibits effective earthly navigation, promises not to wear it, but renegs. That's fine, my kid is not likely to enter into a binding agreement with the moon. But what kind of example is she setting, here? Also, FYI, per both sides: no connection whatsoever to the magnificent They Might Be Giants song. Weird.

The moon sees a nightgown on a laundry line and decides she wants one on her billionth birth night. So she floats down to earth, follows the black road into the valley and goes to a nightgown shop. She tries some on until there are no more in the store. But she is still looking for one like she saw on the laundry line and implores the sales clerk to look one more time. She finds the perfect one, blue flannel and stitched with stars. She sails joyfully outside, wearing her new nightgown home. But the next night the people of the town and the people of earth cannot find the moon and the sun tells her to return it. The moon is temperamental. She agrees to take back the gown, but instead hides it in a drawer in the back of the sky. On those nights you see no moon, you can be sure she is trying it on.
We got this book used from our local library. They sell some books as they purchase new ones, I guess. Anyway, this has been a favorite of both my children, 2 and 4 years old, one girl, one boy. It is beautifully illustrated and the verse is lovely. So well written. A favorite. We have a lot of books and this is one that gets read more often than not. They just come back to it again and again.

Yes, this is an odd book, as children's books go. Quirky.

But children are a little strange, too, and I was maybe a little surprised and very delighted when my daughter asked for this to be read again and again.
If I had to guess, I'd say it's precisely because the moon is "sullen" --and kids are aware that they themselves aren't always happy and sunny. What a nice validation for a little child, to see that characters in a book can be a little downright grumpy and selfish too!

The illustrations are perfect. A little dreamy and not too busy, as so many children's books are these days.

I highly recommend this one.
As a little girl, no other book could capture my imagination like this one. So sad to hear it's out of print! Please bring it back!
I had my mom read it to me every night for 6 months, and it would've been more if she hadn't insisted we move on. :) The dreamy illustrations and language are still so fresh; I can't wait to share it with my own kids someday. And like another reviewer mentioned, the "sullen moon" that the author created is charmingly flawed, which makes the character even more real and likable. Cannot recommend this book enough!
