Synopsis

Five-year-old Luna isn't at all sure she wants to go school. For all she knows, there might be monsters there. But when her loving parents assure her that she'll have a wonderful time playing and learning, she agrees to give school a try. An understanding teacher and a group of friendly kids make Luna very, very glad she made the right decision. But what about the monsters?

Jorge Argueta has crafted a loving bilingual tale, which all young school-goers recognize as their own. Artist Elizabeth Gómez too understands the secret hearts of children, and her luminous, humorous illustrations of Luna and her friends keep children looking for every last detail.
