This week's video review is of Gianna Marino's MEET ME AT THE MOON . Tender and beautiful, Gianna's story is a reassuring depiction of an elephant mother’s love for her calf set in a backdrop of an African drought and the quest for rain. Kirkus Review calls Gianna a “rising star,”and after you see this, I think you'll agree. Gianna's work is very soulful and beautiful. The review pays particular attention to both the art and the lyrical, sense-filled language. I feel fortunate to know her as a friend.
