In this elegantly illustrated celebration of creativity, a little girl’s imagination flows from one exquisite vision to the next, revealing the light within all living things and the interconnectedness of the universe. Accompanied by her Chihuaua puppy, the girl’s focus shifts from a face within the moon, to a flock of birds within a quilt of light, to a star within each flower, to a butterfly that is full of moons. 

Inspired by the simple, circular poetry of Charles Mathes, In Every Moon There is a Face elegantly captures the childlike joy and wonder of all existence. Arlene Graston’s luminous paintings lead us beyond the bounds of time and space. This visual feast reminds us that within each person an entire world awaits.

In Every Moon There is a Face received ForeWord Magazine’s Children’s Book of the Year Award and was a finalist for the Independent Publishers Award for Best Children’s Book.
