Molly Imaginative humorous and dreamy. From the first page I wanted to paint the scenes Calvino "paints". The first story is about a group of relatives rowing out to sea to harvest cheese from the moon. The littlest crew member becomes suspended between the moon's and the Earth's opposite gravitational forces. "The Moon ran off in her ellipse, dragging that swarm of marine fauna through the sky, and a train of long, entwined seaweeds, and Xlthlx hanging there in the midst...her two wispy braids seemed to be flying on their own..." (8).
