The magical story of a young female character, with spectacular illustrations, by a debut African-American author. Fifth colour metallic ink throughout for moon and moon ring. In the light of a blue moon (the rare occurrence of a second full moon in a month), Maxine discovers something extraordinary in the grass - a moon ring, magically transports her first to the Antarctic, then to the plains of Africa, and finally to the heart of New York City, before returning her to her very own bedroom. Was it all just a dream? Or was the magic of the moon ring real? Features an African American heroine without an "agenda" or a discrimination problem to overcome - she's just a kid on an adventure who happens to be black.
