My rating: 5 of 5 stars
James has noticed the moon. It’s brightness calls to him and he longs to touch it. To find out whether it’s really as beautiful as it appears to him.
Taking matters into his own hands, he decides that he’s going to try and touch the moon. Waiting for the cover of night, he soon embarks on a journey that will leave him wondering whether his experience was truly real.
Meeting one of the little people along the way, James is completely mind-boggled that the stories about them were true. Yet he does not let this little fact deter him from the task at hand. Instead, he invites his new friend to tag along.
New friends and magic await their every turn. The moon’s lure strengthens with his every step. James knows that his adventure has just begun and his excitement builds and builds as he draws ever close closer to the moon. So much so, that he prays his adventure will never end.
This was such a great read. I enjoyed it immensely. The illustrations found throughout the book made it even more delightful. Wendy spun such a story full of magic and folklore that captivates the reader from the very start. Both children and adults will love this story very much. Truly recommend it.
Synopsis: “Here within lies a tale of a young boy named James, which takes place in a far away island nation of Iceland.”
Travel along with James up the mountain, soaring through the air with his friends he meets along the way to reach the moon.
