Amos And The Moon

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. As the first picture book by author and illustrator Jan Balet, the imaginative illustrations and lovely storytelling of AMOS AND THE MOON mark the beginning of a lengthy and successful career for the German-American artist.

Originally intended as a Christmas present for his son, Balet’s book became a gift to many more children; and now in its reissue edition, this vintage title will surely delight a new generation of young readers worldwide.
