Excitement and knowledge await readers in author Olivia Longstreet’s new book, “Edgar’s Moon”

“Who is the man in the moon?” is an old-age question that continues to stir children’s imagination as they gaze at the night sky. But how should parents answer this question to their children? Author Olivia Longstreet bares the answer to this wondering question of every child through the gentle story of Edgar’s Moon. It is an illustrated book about a little boy named Edgar, and his wonderment as his moon follows him.

Young readers and adults alike will be fascinated by Edgar’s Moon, a warmhearted tale that follows little Edgar who lives in a big city with his friend Corky. He likes the sunshine and the stars twinkling in the night. But most of all, he likes the moon. But with his fascination with the moon springs his wonderment of its distance, composition, and dweller. A family’s out-of-town trips     provide him the chance to seize the answers to his questions as his mother gives him a clear explanation that clarifies his astonishment.

Enhanced by the beautiful illustrations by Deborah Karen Tudtud, Edgar’s Moon is an interesting and fun read that will capture everyone’s heart - it is a perfect instrument to enlighten children’s surprise of the moon. This book will be featured at the New England Library Association Book Exhibit in Burlington, Vermont, on October 2 to 4, 2011.
