Floyd Cooper received the Coretta Scott King Award forÂ The Blacker the Berry, three Coretta Scott KingÂ HonorsÂ forÂ BrownÂ Honey in Broomwheat Tea,Â Meet Danitra Brown, andÂ IÂ Have Heard ofÂ a Land,Â and an NAACPÂ image award. InÂ Max and the Tag-Along Moon,Â his lush paintings perfectly capture the wonder of the moon, the love between grandfather and grandson, and that feeling of magic every child experiences when the moon follows him home..
âCoretta Scott King Awardâwinning Cooper has created a gentle, comforting story that will reassure children that those who love us are always with us.â
âCooper uses his signature style to illustrate both the landscape--sometimes viewed from the car windows or reflected in the vehicle's mirror--and the expressive faces of his characters. Coupled with the story's lyrical text, this is a lovely mood piece. A quiet, warm look at the bond between grandfather and grandson.â
