Boys and girls alike think love is just gross at an early age. But somehow even though its yucky, love just happens. I liked this beacuse of the simpleness of it. I was able to connect to this book because I enjoy love in the simplest ways. Like my students in my placement that who tell me they like my earrings, my children drawing me a picture or my husband getting a milkshake on his way home. For Austin Grouper, he showed his love for Amy by going through high and lows to bring her the moon, l ...more

This is such a cute funny book. Great for Valentine's Day. Loved it.
Meh, it was ok. Nothing to write home about. My nephew spent a lot of time trying to figure out how in the world you could lasso the moon with a rope, and my niece spent a lot of time being offended that Austin was rude toward Amy. I don't know, do little boys still act this way toward little girls that they like? My niece has a lot of friends who are boys, and they don't seem to be offensive when expressing themselves to her, which is great!
A girl, Amy, moves in next door to Austin. He tries to impress her, when she isn't impressed he insults her. I thought it contained unrealistic behavior for children.
This was so sweet. I would have liked it more if they had specified that Austin imagined that he lassoed the moon for Amy, but it was still cute. Really cute.
A simple but funny story about Austin who has a new neighbor; a girl. he tries to impress her although he is not sure why because he does not like girls.

I didn't enjoy this book. It is a cute premise, but the trip around the world seemed totally out of place to the rest of the story.
Another fantastic book read. A cute story about a first love. Soft and beautiful illustrations compliment the story even more. A must read!

A non traditional love story about a little boy and the new neighbor girl and a moon made of bleu cheese. Lovely.
