Inspired by “Clair de Lune,” Georges Méliès, Wynken, Blynken &; Nod, and Casey’s own
precocious daughter, Cora and the Moon is a colorful and whimsical bedtime story about a trip
to the stars centered around a strong-willed and curious pint-sized heroine.
From the author: ”When my daughter Cora was younger, our post-story bedtime routine was to
turn out the lights in her bedroom and listen to Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” while viewing images
of the moon in photographs, illustrations, and even animations.
This book is a love letter to that time, a tribute to my daughter, and a bedtime story that soothes
and delights both reader and listener.”
This is a beautiful bedtime story. Pure and simple – but this one is her bedtime story. It’s for her
and her and him and her. It’s for Cora and all the Coras of the world.
