In her journey North, a child is shepherded by the moon as she aims to reunite with her father across the border. With vivid and picturesque words by Phillip D. Cortez and imaginative illustrations by Mafs Rodríguez Alpide, I'll Be the Moon shows how la luna brings light to the darkness and guides us to those we love.
