The Moonbeams are all about rewarding these books and bringing them to the attention of parents, booksellers, librarians – and to kids themselves.”
Reviewer Mary Thompson writes, “The voice of Aldo rings true; his perspective on life will appeal to both kids and adults, causing readers to laugh out loud.
