  1. Has this been translated into Spanish? I would love to purchase some copies for my daughter's school library.

    1. Thanks for your interest in a Spanish version of What the Moon Saw! I wish it were available in Spanish. Alas, the only book of mine available in Spanish is Star in the Forest (through Scholastic en Espanol). You can find it on Amazon, or via the Scholastic Book Club if your school is a member, or order it through your bookstore. I hope to have more of my books in Spanish in the future!
