Read in August, 2011

Definitely for older kids if not adults, it's both oblique and heavy-handed. (And what's really going on? Is it a dream? A fable of the past? A wish for the future? Are all the people who climb the ladder to the moon dead like Suhaila's grandma?) but the illustrations are gorgeous (Morales really can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned) and for the right families, this could be a treasure.
