About this deal

With beautiful illustrations of woodland animals, a squishy padded cover and sturdy pages for little hands, your toddler will love snuggling up to read this lyrical bedtime rhyme night after night. And, as I have seen others have a similar experience as I have had with Koontz duds from time to time, I like to think I can say with confidence that this is not one of them. In this stunning new novel, he delivers a tour de force of dark suspense and brilliant revelation that has all the Koontz trademarks: adventure, chills, riddles, humor, heartbreak, an unforgettable cast of characters, and a climax that will leave you clamoring for more. Tom Percival is brilliant at combining comfort and magic in his picture books and ‘By the Light of the Moon’ is no exception.

I want to try reading something else of his to see if this happens all the time or if it is just in this one. Then he is told that he must flee—before the doctor’s enemies hunt him down for the secret circulating through his body.The darker hours, illuminated by the glow of moonlight or artificial bulbs, bring a new perspective to landscapes.

Reviewers hail his boundless originality, his art, his unparalleled ability to create highly textured, riveting drama, at once viscerally familiar and utterly unique. Koontz's ability to blend suspense, mystery, and a touch of the supernatural is on full display here. During the magical hours between twilight and dawn, some sleep but others are wide awake and having fun.All he's told is that he's the "carrier," not of a disease, but of something wondrous that will transform his life in remarkable ways - if it doesn't kill him in the next twenty-four hours. The subtle shine of these intriguing objects encourages a deep sense of contemplation, both of our bodily self and their beautiful forms. Despite some paper-thin characterizations and a predilection for the maudlin, Koontz's sense of pace and the dramatic are sure,'' observed PW. He injects this ragtag cast with a golden serum, altering their physiological and psychological make-up in stunning ways.

During a stay at an Arizona motel, he is knocked out and tied up by a doctor, who administers 18 cc's [1] of a golden substance from a syringe with a large-bore hypodermic needle. After working late one night, Bonnie walks home and spots another girl walking with her headphones on. Also, this book was supposed to be spooky - but I was laughing out loud at Koontz's humor and I even had to go and read halarious lines outloud to other people around me. Just when you think you have a handle on where the story is heading, Koontz throws a curveball that leaves you reeling in the best possible way. Follow Mummy Deer as she takes her fawn on a bedtime walk, meeting lots of other sleepy animals along the way, before it’s time for everyone to drift off to sleep!This wonderful book is not only gorgeously illustrated but it would be a great tool to help a child who has just had to move. Perhaps the answer lies in the eerie, enigmatic messages that Shep, with precious time running out, begins to repeat, about an entity who does his work “by the light of the moon. Bonnie and her coworkers go out to a bar where she has many drinks as well as a little bit of cocaine. A gently emotional story to reassure fears about moving house, with stunning artwork and a wonderful magical element.

Drawing from the fields and forests of the area, she loves creating lyrical stories for the nursery.

His latest is one of those best, exciting and deeply moving, shorter than usual and also less prone to the overwriting, the flood of similes and metaphors, that sometimes overwhelms his storytelling.
