52 Books - book 4

Moon Watchers Companion by Donna Henes
'Everything you ever wanted to know about the moon'

And it does exactly what is says on the tin.

An interesting little book - from global folklore and poetry about the moon to the phases of the moon this book has the lot. It is a pick up and put down sort of read as opposed to a cover to cover one. But there is something for everyone. I like the 'Encyclopedia of Lunar Technology' which explains everything from the original meaning of honeymoon to what a moondogger is.

The format is easy to read with some lovely black and white illustrations. You come away from reading it with a deeper insight to the our lunar neighbour and it does make moon watching (something I love to do) a lot more interesting.

Well worth having a look at. It will be a good one to refer back to as well.
