This week I had the pleasure of reading Adam's picture book Moonday, which he wrote and illustrated. It just made my favorites list. What a beautiful creation. This book is poetic, funny, and transporting--a gentle journey of the imagination. It's the perfect artistic interpretation of that moment when a child, riding in the backseat at night, watches the moon "follow" the car, and falls asleep. This story is the weird and wonder-filled dream you would have if you were that child.
With carefully crafted words and art, Adam Rex describes childhood moments most of us have felt, but few of us could voice.
