About our cover:
What's up with the moon? It's just a big rock, really. Still, without the moon, you'd have to take a flashlight on your moonlight strolls, sit on a beach where the tide goes out but never comes in, and, mostly, show nothing when your kids want to see a stunning heavenly body with just a simple pair of binoculars. Writer Suzanne Wilson discovered a trove of lunar lore for her story, "Night Moves."
