A strange but compelling little book with fantastic illustrations.
First thing I noticed was the *glorious* illustrations (with a few nods to Studio Ghibli's art in there!), and then the story, formed with lyrics, came afterwards. I wasn't familiar with Hawksley Workman, and listening to the actual song, "Almost A Full Moon", from his 2001 album, was an added treat. All in all, a marvelous book.
Hawksley Workman is one of my favorite singers, and "Almost a Full Moon" is one of my favorite songs. Hawksley has a turn of phrase that is poetic, yet grounded and accessible. Illustrator Jensine Eckwall has turned his lyrics into a beautiful and homey picture book that celebrates the natural world, the community around you, and the coziness and simple pleasure of coming together in winter to make and share a pot of soup.
