  3. :

    My greatest joy in children’s literature comes when I find a book that employs both great imagination and loopy word games, the kind of punning and word spin that I loved as a child. It doesn’t happen often. It does with Nancy Libbey Mills’ The Knight the Moon and the Stars Got Stuck. Fun and fast, yet with a heart that goes beyond the standard kiddie lit, The Knight the Moon and the Stars Got Stuck is an image and word romp that parents will enjoy as much as children. There is delightful humor sprinkled throughout, a message of hope that will warm your heart. It’s a book for all ages, seasons and families.
