"As magical asThe Little Prince; as satisfying asWhere the Wild Things Are." —Kirkus Reviews,starred review, onThe Boy and the Blue Moon

"the evocative artwork and cozy wind-down message . . . make this a good choice for bedtime reading" —Booklist, onThe Boy and the Blue Moon

"A magical adventure or a dream—listeners to the tale can decide for themselves. A fun and appealing bedtime choice." —School Library Journal onThe Boy and the Blue Moon

"Crowley’s use of perspective combined with the glossy paper creates a lot of depth, as the light catches the darkest elements and makes them nearly glow. The fanciful, lyrical text and the boy’s shock of yellow hair make the book a bit reminiscent of The Little Prince" —The Horn Book onThe Boy and the Blue Moon
