Nancy Elizabeth Wallace, Author, Nancy Elizabeth Wallace, Illustrator Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) $12 (36p) ISBN 978-0-618-26353-0
In The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars, poems collected (including several of Wallace's own) and illus. by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace, an assortment of poems explore beacons of day and night. For ""Pillow Song,"" by Russell Hoban (""Moony, moony, silver deep/ Ocean rock me to my sleep/ Morning sunshine in my cup/ Sing a song to wake me up""), Wallace shows two scenes, as one of her signature bunnies slumbers under a crescent moon, then wakes to the sunrise. The playful ""Sunflakes"" by Frank Asch imagines what it would be like ""If sunflakes fell like snowflakes,"" for which Wallace portrays a ""sunbunny"" equivalent of a snowman.
