While tired farmers and their families are in bed, the harvest moon silently climbs into the sky and starts working its magic. For some, it is the nightly signal to rise and shine. It is time to hunt, to work, or to play in the shadows. For a little girl and her cat, it is an invitation to enjoy the wonders of the night and a last flood of light before the short days of winter set in. With an evocative text and radiant illustrations, this companion to Twilight Comes Twice offers a glimpse of nature’s nightlife long after bedtime.
Rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoyed the poetic descriptions of the moon in Autumn. I'd recommend reading this around this time of year.

Cleanliness: there is one paragraph that says the moon "connects us to our distant ancestors who prayed to the harvest moon, yet feared it might be a god's one unblinking eye. It would be easy to skip over this sentence.
