This book contains facts about THE MOON, poetry, illustrations, and a narrative about you and THE MOON and straw boys and bears. Most importantly, it contains a lot of strange and eerie feelings that are sort of about THE MOON and sort of about us. Reading MOON FACTS simultaneously feels like looking at THE MOON while having uncomfortably human feelings and looking at a beautiful human while having uncomfortably cosmic feelings. My only wish for this book would be that it contained 999 facts abo ...more

Moon Facts indulges in whimsical fancies and pulls the reader through a thoughtful journey to another world.
Begging to be made into a short film, Moon Facts hits hard with scientific lunar f-a-c-t-s while coaxing the imagination to play.

Do yourself a favor and read this some weekend.
You will never look at the moon the same.

Fact 1. "Moon Facts" contains 23 poems presented as numbered facts about the Moon.

Fact 2. When I say poems, I include prose poems. What little punctuation there is has been shaken out of the regular poems and used in the prose poems.

Fact 3. I like the conceit of the project, and I liked most of the poems. There were, however, half a dozen poems that I didn't care for.

Fact 4. The poems contain strange, sweet, and humorous elements. I liked the mentions of bees. I liked the two-line stanza in "Fac
