When Moon Fell Down
By Linda Smith   
Illustrated by Kathryn Brown 

Review by: Chris Burnett

     Moon, with his reassuring face, falls down from the sky one night and meets some farm animals, one in particular takes a shine to him and together they view the world nearby in a whole new way.
     Moon "Rolled about in sheer delight", takes a glide on a swing as he has seen the children do.  Along the way he befriends Cow with whom he traverses the quaint little town.  Each finds wonderment and a friend with whom to loiter.
"The city shops Moon knew quite well
For he'd lit upon each shingled top.
But what they sold he couldn't tell,
So now he paused to window-shop."
     Brown's moonlit illustrations bring the reader directly into night with all its soft glow.  Gentle and whimsical Moon and Cow draw the reader into a safe, quiet place from which to view the world that exists while we sleep. Upon returning home, Farmer sets them straight - their adventure somehow wrong in the light of dawn.  Friends forever they shall be since "The Night Moon Fell Down"
     Brown's illustrations awash with moonlight and Smith's lyrical text make this sweet, restful story a sure hit at bedtime.  And for those searching for picture books on friendship this makes the grade.  A great tie-in with the nursery rhyme "Hey Diddle Diddle."
     Recommended for ages 3-5.
