  1. 2010.12.08 Papa, Please get the moon for me

달의 위상 변화라는 익숙한 천문 현상을 다리 삼아, 명랑한 소녀와 자상한 아빠가 나누는 교감을 이야기하는 상쾌한 그림책이다. 보름달까지 닿은 사다리와 그믐달을 손에 쥔 소녀의 모습에서 대략을 어림해 볼 수도 있지만, 판화 기법과 붓칠에 의한 마티에르는 시각적인 힘과 율동감을 전달하며 눈길을 붙잡는다. 또한 독자로 하여금 이야기를 앞서 가며 상상하지 못 하게 하는 속도감과 명쾌한 기승전결은 강한 청량감을 남겨 준다. 하드보드지 제본과 단순한 구조의 팝업이 어린 날의 기억들을 더듬게 만드는 'Papa, Please get the moon for me'는 오래 오래 간직하고 싶고, 두고 두고 읽고 싶으며, 아이들은 물론 아이를 가진 부모들에게 권하고 싶은 그런 책이다.   






Eric Carle, Little Simon, 1999


Monica wants the moon to play with, so her Papa sets out to get it for her. It isn't easy to climb all the way up to the moon, but he finally succeeds-only to find that the moon is too big to carry home!. The way in which this problem is solved is a joyful surprise.
Here is a multi-faceted story that appeals to children visually, verbally and emotionally, and which also contains a first lesson in natural history, depicting the eternal cycle of the waxing and waning of the moon. The simple text, just right for reading aloud or for the beginning reader expresses perfectly the purity of a father's love for his child. Small readers will empathize with Monica's longing for the moon, and will be reassured by her father's willingness to try to make her wish come true. And, on a deeper level, they will recognize that Papa is not merely fulfilling Monica's whim, but is demonstrating to her that even a seemingly unreachable goal can actually be attained. Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me is a book to be re-read many times, and to be treasured for its beauty and its positive message of love and inspiration.

Eric Carle well-known creator of many beloved picture books for small readers and listeners, including such classics as Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me, The Tiny Seed, Rooster's Off to See the World, A House for Hermit Crab, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. He is especially celebrated for his unique ability to combine learning with pleasure. Children delight in the distinctive beauty of his illustrations - richly layered collages in glowing colors - and they love his entertaining stories, which invite them to make their own discoveries in a natural, joyful way.
Born in Syracuse, New York, Eric Carle received much of his education in Germany. He is a graduate of the Akademie der bildenden Kunste in Stuttgart, where he learned about Goethe's color theory and complementary colors. But the chief inspiration for Hello, Red Fox came from his talks with young readers themselves, who were surprised and fascinated when he demonstrated for them - just like in this book - that all colors have opposites.
Eric Carle has two grown children. He and his wife live in western Massachusetts.
