"A sweet sliver of a book."
Kate Kellaway - Observer
"Boxall's ink drawings breathe beauty into these lunar musings and fantastical truths."
Children's Books Ireland
"Not only is this an awe-inspiring anthology of moon-themed poetry from internationally-known poets, it's got interesting facts when they can add to the appreciation of a particular poem's topic. Boxall's beautiful black and white linocuts add another delightful dimension to what's already an out of this world anthology"
