Henkes employs boldly outlined organic shapes and shades of black, white, and gray with rose undertones on creamy paper to tell a simple story of a kitten who mistakes the moon for a bowl of milk. The moon, the flowers, the fireflies' lights, and the kitten's eyes create a comforting circle motif. The gouache and colored-pencil illustrations project a varied page design that rhythmically paces the spare text.
An ordinary trip to the laundromat with Dad becomes a hilarious epic drama of miscommunication when Trixie realizes that her beloved stuffed animal is left behind.
