Marjane Satrapi is the award-winning author of the graphic novels Persepolis, Persepolis 2 and Embroideries. She is also the author of many books for children. Marjane grew up in Iran but now makes her home in Paris.From School Library Journal :
PreS–Young Marie is afraid of the monsters that appear in her room each night. Her ingenious solution is to snip the moon out of the sky and keep it in her room since, as everyone knows, monsters are afraid of the light. Unfortunately, this idea causes havoc with the village cats, who demand their moon back. Luckily, the Cat King arrives at a solution that satisfies everyone's needs, but readers may not feel so rewarded. While the bold, colorful cartoon illustrations and the simple text are accessible and inviting, the story lacks logic. The notion of a city populated by anthropomorphic cats is charming but seems startling given that Marie is a human girl, and no further exposition is given. The ending will make readers smile but it feels like the conclusion of a folktale without an introduction. Overall, the story has many appealing points, but its structure and narrative feel patchy and incomplete. The book is brightened by Satrapi's illustrations, which are a vibrant treat. The use of eye-popping colors and nuanced expressions make the monsters just a little bit intimidating but not overly frightening.–Tamara E. Richman, Somerset County Library System, Bridgewater, NJ
