The Moon in Swampland was a nice children's story book with what I thought were amazing pictures. Saw this book on the clearance shelf at the local Half Price Books for a buck and snatched it up quick as could be. Read it to my daughter but she didn't seem to get into it too much. I have to admit the story was nothing to be stunned by a little shaky at parts which is what kept this to a 3.5 star book. But the artwork itself is worth having all by itself. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184507095X, Hardcover)

Whenever the Moon's back is turned, the wicked bogles terrorize the townsfolk, coming out of their slimy holes to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom. One night the Moon takes human form to rescue Thomas, a boy from the village who is lost in the marshy mist. In saving him, however, the Moon is captured by the bogles and imprisoned in a watery hole. With no natural light at night to keep the bogles at bay, the townsfolk live in mortal fear until Thomas decides to end the evil sprites' reign of terror. Gorgeously illustrated atmospheric images and a powerful folk narrative make this an ideal first horror picture book.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:09:19 -0400)

When the Moon is captured by the evil bogles while trying to rescue him, Thomas, tired of living in fear, vows to return the favor and sets out to restore peace to his village by ending the bogles's reign of terror--once and for all.
