      The first time I encountered Many Moons by James Thurber, it was read to me I was in third grade If the illustrations were shown, I didn t see them And they weren t necessary for me to enjoy the book I could picture it perfectly in my head The story stayed with me for many years If I ever knew, I soon forgot the name of the author I ve since forgotten the name of my third grade teacher But I ve never forgotten how much I loved this book.Years later, in my early twenties, I began reading Dorothy [...]

      This book won the 1944 Caldecott, but this must ve been another year where there wasn t much competition I liked the book, though the story drones on for a bit The book tells the story of a princess who falls ill and wants the moon, but all of her father s advisors say that the moon is impossible to get, until he asks the Court Jester, who takes a logical to a child approach to the situation She gets her moon and gets well again The next night, when the moon reappears, the king is frantically w [...]

      A little princess falls ill, and the only way she will get better is if she gets the moon The king consults his wise men the Lord High Chamberlain, the Royal Wizard, and the Royal Mathematician In the end, it is the Court Jester who discovers the solution by consulting the princess This story reminds all readers that answers are sometimes found in what seem the least likely places and the wisdom of children should never be discounted.

    6. Jackie "the Librarian" on said:

      I love this story about a princess with a tummyache, who asks for the moon, and the jester who figures out how the king can get it for her Way too wordy for a library storytime, this is a great lap book for parents to share with their own princesses I prefer the illustrations by Marc Simont, even though the they aren t the ones that won the Caldecott.

    7. Amy Beth on said:

      This is a book for children, but and their sneaky ways brought it to my attention because of my love for James Thurber I remember this story from when I was a kid I loved it then, too I m happy to add this copy to my Thurber collection I will say that I do not have children, nor am I a librarian or someone who regularly reads children s literature so if you are looking for advice on if this is appropriate for your child, I don t know This was written in 1943 and I think it s a charming story I v [...]

      This was a book that my sister picked up for my niece from the library and it seemed like it was going to be a good book Unfortunately upon opening the pages I noticed that there was writing to a page than she is comfortable with thus making the story longer and the font is small, which led to my correct guess that she would get bored with the book before we got to far into it Further there wasn t much room to like the characters for they were rather flat and bland with only the court jester ha [...]

      My mother must have read this to me so many times as a child I didn t think I recognized it from the title or cover, but as soon as I opened the book and saw the delicate, softly colored sketches, I couldn t help but breathe a nostalgic sigh The illustrations in this book are a pure delight I love the way the artist has the images winding around the text on some pages, unfurling from the scroll depicted on the opposite page I love the expressive faces and body language of the characters, and the [...]

      I enjoyed this one than I thought I would The little girl and the jester were both wise in their own ways I appreciated the way that the jester accepted the girl and her ideas on her own terms I also enjoyed the clever use of words in the story.

      Many Moons, by James Thurber, is an example of traditional literature and is about a young princess who falls ill and the only cure for her sickness will be if she can have the moon This book could be classified under the subgenre of a folktale because its purpose is to simply tell the story of a princess in a far off kingdom The story begins with, Once upon a time and it continues with this fairy tale format.The setting for this story is similar to other fairy tales because it takes place in so [...]

    20. Hannah Gookstetter on said:

      I fell in love with Many Moons because of the humor it had When the king asks those who work for him to get the moon for his sick daughter, they reflect on all that they have done for him in the past along with a few additional elements that are added for the sake of humor like a short grocery list that was added by someone s wife or chores they need to do at home, etc Surrounding the text when the workers are reflecting on what they have done for the king in the past, the illustrations display [...]

      The king attempts to get the moon or his daughter, princess Lenore Finally the jester gets the goldsmith to make a moon Then the entire castle staff has to try to keep Lenore from seeing the real moon When she does, she explains that it is like a lost tooth When one is removed another grows in its place This book would be great for cause and effect as well as problem and solution The illustrations in this book are simple yet unique, they have s sketchy like look that makes the characters pop The [...]

      In this picture book with abstract illustrations of characters and the sky, a little princess requests the moon to help her heal while she is sick This magical realism story tells about the King recruiting people to get the moon for his daughter so she can get well However, it isn t until Court Jester sneaks into her room and explains that the moon is already in her possession, that her perspective of life quickly changes.

    24. Rachel Kremer on said:

      I really enjoyed this book I think one thing children will really enjoy are the long lists within the book I am not sure why, but children love when there is super wordy long things to read, especially if you use silly voices I loved that the jester was the one to figure everything out within this book It shows children that you don t need to be the smartest or highest up to be able to make a difference and be smart in your own way.

    25. Maria Rowe on said:

      1944 Caldecott Winner I like this story a lot I think it works well it s long but interesting to read I m not enthused by Louis Slobodkin s illustrations They re very flowy and not distinctive, and I also felt like the pictures got worse towards the end I really enjoyed the story though Materials used unlistedTypeface used unlisted

      A King goes through numerous people and trials so that he can get the moon for his daughter and make her well again Through funny and ridiculous recounts of all of the King s requests, we learn that he is a very needy man It is finally the Court Jester that proves the most useful and clever, and is able to satisfy his daughter s wishes.

    27. JeriKniess on said:

      Very cute fable fairytale type story I heard about this book from an Etsy listing for a moon necklace It made me curious enough to read it and I enjoyed it This princess tells her father that she will recover from her illness if someone gets the moon for her He calls for all his best advisers, but it turns out the Court Jester is the best help he can get for his problem.

    28. Richelle Rininger on said:

      The story was good However this book won the Caldecott metal for it s pictures I don t understand that The pictures in my opinion could have been better.
