Amos and the Moon
Amos wanted the moon. He went to the baker, the watchmaker, the fish man, the butcher, the shoemaker, and the antiques dealer, but none of them could give him the moon!
As the first picture book by author and illustrator Jan Balet, the imaginative illustrations and lovely storytelling of Amos and the Moon mar the beginning of a lengthy and successful career for the German-American artist. Chock full of charm and whimsy, this 1948 title tells a simple, endearing tale of a curious little lad on his search for the moon come daylight.
