See You Soon Moon: 12/02/11
See You Soon Moon by Donna Conrad is on the surface the story of a boy going to see his grandmother. It's also a great introduction to parallax.
Before the trip begins, the boy says good bye to moon. Soon after he notices that the moon appears to be following the car. As they drive the boy wonders about the moon and how it can appear to be along for the trip.
The illustrations have a three dimensional quality to them, having been made from foam, cardboard and thickly applied acrylics. The effect is pleasing, eye catching and unique.
