    There's no place like home. This book feels like a dream. I enjoyed this blue and moody book. It's set up as this magical night. I enjoyed and was delighted by the book. The nephew had fun reading this also. He likes cats and he wanted to take his own trip to the moon. I told him he...

    Although blue moons aren't as rare as one might be led to believe, they are somewhat unusual, and when they occur, there is a feeling of something special and all sorts of possibilities swirling in the air. In this picture book, the moon and many of the scenes are actually awash in blu...

    I wanted to like this book. Mostly, it was just weird. It definitely read like it was based on a dream (and the character clearly is dreaming himself). It just was...unsettling in some odd way? ...

    3.5 stars "The cat and his boy walked through the bluebells toward the forest. A hundred thousand tiny bells were ringing out a song that no one had ever heard before." Picture book enthusiasts might recognize Sara O'Leary's name immediately- she is the Canadian author behind t...

    Where can you go when the blue moon is out? Answer: anywhere you want. A charming picture book about how far your imagination can take you. Perfect bedtime story. Written by Sara O'Leary, illustrated by Ashley Crowley and published by Henry Holt and Company. #PB #moon #bedtime ...

    The Boy and the Blue Moon is a children's picture book written by Sara O'Leary and illustrated by Ashley Crowley, which tells a story about a boy, his cat, and the magic of the Blue Moon. O'Leary's text is simplistic and straightforward, yet captures the surreal and dreamlike qualit...

    By one definition a blue moon is a second full moon in a single calendar month. February 2018 was a month without a full moon, giving us this March with a second full moon. On March 31, 2018 a full moon, a blue moon, will light the sky. It is the second one we've had this year. It is t...

    The illustrations by Ashley Crowley really carried this book for me. Picture book illustrators are unsung heroes. Her art was simply breathtaking and enchanting, and I was paying much more attention to the individual details in her images than I was to the story itself. The story w...

    The night air breathed a wondrous sound as "A hundred thousand tiny bells were ringing out a song that no one had ever heard before," beckoning a boy and his cat as they venture off into the forest on one irresistibly enchanting evening. The Boy and the Blue Moon takes the reader on...

    Because a blue moon is so special, it inspires a lot of imaginative stories. Anything can happen when there's a blue moon in the sky. With beautiful illustrations rendered in blue ink, the author takes us on an evening stroll with a young boy and his cat. As the two walk together throu...

    The Boy and the Blue Moon by Sara O'Leary was a story of many children's dreams. On the night of a great blue moon a boy and his cat go on an adventure and end up on the moon. Wishes that come true aren't always what you expected and before long, they are wishing to come home. The illu...

    *I received a free review copy of this book from the publisher through my district library services* This is a sweet, gentle book about imagination. The illustrations are primarily blue and white, with a few splashes or orange. At the end of the story, readers are unsure if everythi...

    The magical blue illustrations by Ashley Crowley take this boy on his cat into the equally magical story on the night of the blue moon where "anything can happen" and it does. Wouldn't it be fun if we had these wonderful experiences often? Yet, as you will read, sometimes the wishes th...

    The story was lacking for me, but the artwork was simply magical. The porch lights, moon, stars, etc. really mimicked glowing lights. The swirling motions of the boy and the cat when they were playing gave it the illusion they were really moving. I would say this is a must buy and a fa...

    The illustrations are lovely and bring the text to life. The boy heads out to explore the forest under the blue moon. He makes a wish and ends up on the moon with his cat. After a while, he realizes he's lonely and returns home to wake up in his bed. Magical scenery in shades of blue ...

    A true play on the once in a blue moon phrase. Here a boy goes out during a blue moon and discovers there is magic afoot. Love the various shades of blue used on the page against the red clothing in the later pages and the cat companion is sweet. ...

    The author's use of imagination and play while talking about the book is wonderful. The illustrations draw you into the story and makes the reader feel like they are on a journey to the moon as well. How perfect is it that I'm reading it during our second month of blue moons! ...

    There's no place like home. This book feels like a dream. I enjoyed this blue and moody book. It's set up as this magical night. I enjoyed and was delighted by the book. The nephew had fun reading this also. He likes cats and he wanted to take his own trip to the moon. I told him he...

    Although blue moons aren't as rare as one might be led to believe, they are somewhat unusual, and when they occur, there is a feeling of something special and all sorts of possibilities swirling in the air. In this picture book, the moon and many of the scenes are actually awash in blu...

    Magical! ...

    I wanted to like this book. Mostly, it was just weird. It definitely read like it was based on a dream (and the character clearly is dreaming himself). It just was...unsettling in some odd way? ...

    By one definition a blue moon is a second full moon in a single calendar month. February 2018 was a month without a full moon, giving us this March with a second full moon. On March 31, 2018 a full moon, a blue moon, will light the sky. It is the second one we've had this year. It is t...

    The night air breathed a wondrous sound as "A hundred thousand tiny bells were ringing out a song that no one had ever heard before," beckoning a boy and his cat as they venture off into the forest on one irresistibly enchanting evening. The Boy and the Blue Moon takes the reader on...

    Because a blue moon is so special, it inspires a lot of imaginative stories. Anything can happen when there's a blue moon in the sky. With beautiful illustrations rendered in blue ink, the author takes us on an evening stroll with a young boy and his cat. As the two walk together throu...

    The story was lacking for me, but the artwork was simply magical. The porch lights, moon, stars, etc. really mimicked glowing lights. The swirling motions of the boy and the cat when they were playing gave it the illusion they were really moving. I would say this is a must buy and a fa...

    The illustrations are lovely and bring the text to life. The boy heads out to explore the forest under the blue moon. He makes a wish and ends up on the moon with his cat. After a while, he realizes he's lonely and returns home to wake up in his bed. Magical scenery in shades of blue ...

    A true play on the once in a blue moon phrase. Here a boy goes out during a blue moon and discovers there is magic afoot. Love the various shades of blue used on the page against the red clothing in the later pages and the cat companion is sweet. ...

    The author's use of imagination and play while talking about the book is wonderful. The illustrations draw you into the story and makes the reader feel like they are on a journey to the moon as well. How perfect is it that I'm reading it during our second month of blue moons! ...

    A different type of book to be sure, is it a dream or real? Hues of blue once is a blue moon - a boy and cat explore a dream world or is it. Book cover is different from the jacket. Interesting endpapers. ...

    Favorite line: "...somewhere high in the branches, something was singing. It might have been birds or it might have been dragons." The blue palette and the mysterious blue moon work together to support this creative fantasy adventure. ...

    There's no place like home. This book feels like a dream. I enjoyed this blue and moody book. It's set up as this magical night. I enjoyed and was delighted by the book. The nephew had fun reading this also. He likes cats and he wanted to take his own trip to the moon. I told him he...

    Although blue moons aren't as rare as one might be led to believe, they are somewhat unusual, and when they occur, there is a feeling of something special and all sorts of possibilities swirling in the air. In this picture book, the moon and many of the scenes are actually awash in blu...

    An appealing magical adventure story with lovely, dreamy illustrations. ...

    Magical! ...

    I wanted to like this book. Mostly, it was just weird. It definitely read like it was based on a dream (and the character clearly is dreaming himself). It just was...unsettling in some odd way? ...

    The Boy and the Blue Moon is a children's picture book written by Sara O'Leary and illustrated by Ashley Crowley, which tells a story about a boy, his cat, and the magic of the Blue Moon. O'Leary's text is simplistic and straightforward, yet captures the surreal and dreamlike qualit...

    By one definition a blue moon is a second full moon in a single calendar month. February 2018 was a month without a full moon, giving us this March with a second full moon. On March 31, 2018 a full moon, a blue moon, will light the sky. It is the second one we've had this year. It is t...

    The illustrations by Ashley Crowley really carried this book for me. Picture book illustrators are unsung heroes. Her art was simply breathtaking and enchanting, and I was paying much more attention to the individual details in her images than I was to the story itself. The story w...

    The night air breathed a wondrous sound as "A hundred thousand tiny bells were ringing out a song that no one had ever heard before," beckoning a boy and his cat as they venture off into the forest on one irresistibly enchanting evening. The Boy and the Blue Moon takes the reader on...

    Because a blue moon is so special, it inspires a lot of imaginative stories. Anything can happen when there's a blue moon in the sky. With beautiful illustrations rendered in blue ink, the author takes us on an evening stroll with a young boy and his cat. As the two walk together throu...

    The Boy and the Blue Moon by Sara O'Leary was a story of many children's dreams. On the night of a great blue moon a boy and his cat go on an adventure and end up on the moon. Wishes that come true aren't always what you expected and before long, they are wishing to come home. The illu...

    O?Leary, Sara The Boy and the Blue Moon. PICTURE BOOK. Godwin Books (Henry Holt) (Macmillan), 2018. $18. 9781627797740 A boy and his cat go outside during a winters blue moon. They hear magical music, find a new lake, and even travel to the moon. Filled with blue and white illustr...

    *I received a free review copy of this book from the publisher through my district library services* This is a sweet, gentle book about imagination. The illustrations are primarily blue and white, with a few splashes or orange. At the end of the story, readers are unsure if everythi...

    The magical blue illustrations by Ashley Crowley take this boy on his cat into the equally magical story on the night of the blue moon where "anything can happen" and it does. Wouldn't it be fun if we had these wonderful experiences often? Yet, as you will read, sometimes the wishes th...

    The story was lacking for me, but the artwork was simply magical. The porch lights, moon, stars, etc. really mimicked glowing lights. The swirling motions of the boy and the cat when they were playing gave it the illusion they were really moving. I would say this is a must buy and a fa...

    The illustrations are lovely and bring the text to life. The boy heads out to explore the forest under the blue moon. He makes a wish and ends up on the moon with his cat. After a while, he realizes he's lonely and returns home to wake up in his bed. Magical scenery in shades of blue ...

    A true play on the once in a blue moon phrase. Here a boy goes out during a blue moon and discovers there is magic afoot. Love the various shades of blue used on the page against the red clothing in the later pages and the cat companion is sweet. ...

    The author's use of imagination and play while talking about the book is wonderful. The illustrations draw you into the story and makes the reader feel like they are on a journey to the moon as well. How perfect is it that I'm reading it during our second month of blue moons! ...

    A different type of book to be sure, is it a dream or real? Hues of blue once is a blue moon - a boy and cat explore a dream world or is it. Book cover is different from the jacket. Interesting endpapers. ...

    Favorite line: "...somewhere high in the branches, something was singing. It might have been birds or it might have been dragons." The blue palette and the mysterious blue moon work together to support this creative fantasy adventure. ...

    A magical nighttime journey for a young boy and his cat. Illustrations make you feel like you are floating, as in a soft dream. ...

    The story is a good one because it talks about the "magic" of blue moons. That is pretty cool, but overall I think that you should just pick this book up for the illustrations alone! Beautiful. ...

    A very sweet story. Perfect for bedtime! ...

    So very lovely. ...

    Adventure! ...

    I have to admit, The only thing I really liked about this book is all the blue that was used. Possibly because blue is my favorite color ...

    This would be a cute book for a color theme storytime. I really like the illustrations and the blue coloring is gorgeous. ...
