    The moon is important to nocturnal creatures, so Emile the polar bear is especially honored when he's selected to be its new keeper. As soon as his tenure begins, however, Emile notices that the full moon seems to be shrinking. After failing to find a solution, he is joined by a giant green bird, just as the last sliver of a crescent disappears. "Things come and go," says the bird, and sure enough, a new moon soon returns. In her first solo picture-book effort, Zosienka does more than illustrate the phases of the moon cycle; she effortlessly builds a whimsical, anthropomorphic animal community around the tale of Emile, a large bear with the curiosity and heart of a young child. His earnest attempts to tend to the moon reflect a love for nature that young readers will find contagious. The gouache and colored-pencil art presents a larger-than-life, bright-shining moon that feels undeniably magical. In turns humorous, informative, and heartwarming, Emile's gentle story will resonate widely. Preschool-Grade 2. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
