I received a free kindle copy of The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Bella Woodfield from Amazon for fair review. I gave it four stars.
The illustration on the cover is cleverly done. The book shows the little girl seeking different methods to reach to moon to find out what it tasted like. Her little dog was her faithful traveling companion through their adventures. She drove her scooter, bounced on a large ball, tried the longest ladder on earth & finally dug a giant hole.
It was a cute story & simple enough for beginning readers. It designed for readers to the age of six. It's a fun read & would be good for parents, grandparents, older siblings, teachers or librarians to read to a child. It was an enjoyable experience learning about how she might reach the moon.
I wanted to view this book so badly I deleted my first effort and opted to read it immediatley on cloud reader and had SUCCESS! 21 Sep 2014

I'm not sure why I get this message when I try to move the contents from my Manage Your Contents and Device : "You have selected content that is not compatible with any of your registered devices. Please remove incompatible content from selection for eligible devices to appear." However, just seeing the cover artwork I HAD to have this children's book so since I couldn't view it on my kindle I deleted the book and reloaded straight to kindle cloud reader and am very glad to report I was able to read this book and it was everything I hoped for! Thirty+ pages of wonderful illustrations in the same color scheme as the cover, very cute girl and pink stuffed bunny rabbit to keep her company, and an amusing story that answers the question "What does the moon taste like?" I have two words for this book, "Loved it!" (Please keep writing more books!)

Lovely and charming story. My little one really engaged with the story. Lovely artwork as well, not the usual fluffy pastels.

A little girl is looking at the moon and she thinks, it would be fun, to be able to eat a piece of it. But first she has to reach the moon and that proves more difficult than she expected.
Will she reach the moon? And what will it taste like? Hopefully moonlicious.
My son couldn't/wouldn't sleep and I decided, I had to find a nice bedtime story for him. Couldn't resist this one. What's better than a bedtime story with the moon?
It's a lovely story. I particularly liked, that her little cuddly toy dog is always by her side, always doing something which ties in with the story. It's.so cheerful.
That all the pages are in dark blue with the silvery moon gives it really the feeling of a clear moonlit night.
It did the trick, my son finally settled for the night and we both enjoyed the story a lot.
5 bright stars on a moonlit sky from me.
"La petite fille et la Lune" drew me immediately in and I know that it’s one that my children will love! The illustrations are simple, bold and quirky – somewhat reminiscent of a Dr. Seuss book! The movement of the story is absolutely wonderful, drawing you in, taking you by the hand on a marvelous adventure full of fantasy, wonder and creativity. This is what children’s literature should be all about!
The language is simple and engaging with a perfectly rhythmic cacaphony of short phrases, isolated words, wordless pages, repetition and emotion. And wonder! Let’s not forget the wonder that fills the pages of this delightful book. (There is a preview of the book at the bottom of this post.)
Translations are not offered in the book itself, but the language is simple. For true beginners, the English and French versions could be used side by side.
