Thanking the Moon This lovely picture book - with clear cut illustrations that combine blocks of colour with pattern - describes how a family celebrates the Mid-Autumn or Moon Festival which is the equivalent for many Chinese and Asian peoples of Harvest Festival or Thanksgiving. Two children are shown helping their parents prepare for the night-time picnic where they pay homage to the moon, eat traditional foods like moon cakes and parade with paper lanterns, often in the shape of a rabbit. An afterword gives more information on the origins and myths of these customs.
