Amazing book!! submitted by manz on May 24, 2016, 8:07am Miss Moon: Wise Words from a Dog Governess is a picture book, but isn’t quite a story, and is absolutely not just for kids. Miss Wilhelmina Moon sets off to a small island off the coast of France to be a governess to sixty-seven dogs. Each page is consumed with gorgeous full-color oil paintings of Miss Moon and her companions biking, bathing, reading, celebrating, and more. With each page the only text is a life lesson.

Lesson One: Friends can come in many shapes and sizes.

Lesson Two: Be true to your adventurous spirit.

It’s really quite sweet, and the whimsical nostalgia-inspired images illustrate such wisdom perfectly. Don’t miss the “class photo” at the end where we meet all sixty-seven dogs. This book is great if you like works by Maira Kalman, or are a fan of dogs. I cannot handle how much I like this book. I may have hugged it after reading it.
