But change is inevitable, even on the prairie. Something new is expected, and Sarah says it will be the perfect gift. Cassie isn't so sure. But just as life changes, people change too. And Cassie learns that unexpected surprises can bring great joy.
More Perfect than the Moon invites us back to the Witting family farm, visited in the Newbery Medal-winning Sarah, Plain and Tall, Skylark, and Caleb's Story. With her lyrical prose, Patricia MacLachlan writes about a family's boundless capacity for love.

"As always, MacLachlan's lyrical prose conveys volumes in a few well-chosen words. Solid, believable characters face classic dilemmas, yet the ending feels neither pat nor predictable." (Booklist)
"Another heartwarming installment in the saga of the Witting family, first made famous in Sarah, Plain and Tall....In true MacLachlan fashion, the spare, graceful writing sparkles with fresh images, and the first-person point of view rests firmly with the child." (School Library Journal)

Overall, the reading of this book is a little too
