'Where on Earth' is the Moon by Ruth Martin is an enchanting bedtime story about a young girl called Luna's fascination with the moon and what happens to it in the daytime. Strong illustrations give the book a soft, moonlit atmosphere which is perfect for reading at bedtime." PW (Publishers Weekly) "A consummate bedtime read, Martin's story circles around a single question: "Where," a moon-obsessed girl named Luna wonders, "does the Moon go all day?" Martin's prose dwells on soothing, soporific imagery ("Perhaps the Moon slips softly into the ocean during the day") and slips in lots of sound words ("Whoosh... wash, whoosh... wash went the waves"), while Latyk's spreads show Luna on dreamy excursions underwater in a bulgy little bathysphere, a balloon journey over snow-capped mountains, and a rocket trip that leads her all the way to the Moon. Martin, an editor at Templar, wrote this book as a vehicle for the work of French artist Latyk. His retro spreads feature the flat, graphic figures and slick surfaces of '60s commercial art, but his palette of Prussian blue, robin's egg, and pale orange softens the mix, while the eerie moonlight that bathes objects in its reflected glow adds depth. "I'm always here in space, watching over you," the Moon tells Luna fondly. It's just the thing for a read-aloud after a long, busy day. Ages 4–7." Kirkus Review "Luna, who loves the moon, wonders where it goes by day. Thus, nightly she tries to stay awake, hoping to learn its secret. But the sounds of each evening lull her to sleep. In dreams, mirages of the moon appear, yet the mystery remains until the young enthusiast is catapulted into space. Latyk’s lush artwork, well-executed and incredibly tasteful, is a visual treat. Composed of graphic shapes in a retro-cool style, the digital illustrations flow with Martin’s words as the story progresses. Visions of Luna soaring above mountains, gliding across the sky, luminous in the depths of the sea are exhilarating yet peaceful, playful yet refined. Although the text feels labored at times, the use of onomatopoeia to describe the rhythmic sounds of waves washing, crickets chirping and rain pouring will ready restless readers for bed, and many will find comfort in the steadfast moon and its gentle light. Those who cavil that the moon is very often visible by day are missing the point. A lovely, slumberous story." Booklist Published in England as Where on Earth Is the Moon?, this book was inspired by a postcard of French illustrator Latyks work. Expanded into a picture book, his colors and imagery are no less enchanting. The story focuses on a little girl named Luna and her fascination with the moon. She gazes at it every night and wonders where it goes during the day. When she tries to stay awake and follow the moons path out of sight, she dreams up scenarios that Latyk imaginatively renders: the moon as a round and shimmering frozen lake (tracked by Luna and her stuffed balloon in a balloon) and the moon as a glowing sea creature (followed by Luna and her bunny in a submarine). Ultimately, she realizes the moon is there all the time, waiting until nighttime to shine in the sky and watch over her. Martin and Latyk have a created a bedtime book that invites listeners to dream big dreams."   Thu, 30 Sep 2010 09:46:04 +0100 http://www.goodillustration.com/blog/details/Olivier-Latyk-receives-rave-reviews/id=162/ http://www.goodillustration.com/blog/details/Olivier-Latyk-receives-rave-reviews/id=162/ Steve Thorogood 1949-2010 Steve Thorogood - Founder of Good Illustration 1949 - 2010   After a long and bravely fought battle with cancer, Steve passed away peacefully on 7th September, surrounded by his close family.
