About the Author

Shirley Day is the author of Luna and the Big Blur. She lives in San Diego, California.

Don Morris works for the St. Petersburg (Florida) Times as an illustrator. He has illustrated multiple children's books, including Luna and the Big Blur.


PreS-Gr 3‘Nearsighted Luna hates wearing glasses, and she hates her name, which she believes her parents chose because they favor tuna fish. One night, she dreams she can see everything perfectly. But when she tries doing without her glasses the next day, she bumps into things and has several near misses. When her father tells her that she is special and that she was actually named after the moon, she immediately cheers up and announces that she doesn't mind wearing glasses anymore. Readers will find it difficult to believe that Luna, who can supposedly see well up close, would actually stir the goldfish instead of a pot of soup or eat cat treats instead of cookies. Also, her complete change of heart is much too abrupt to be credible. In watercolor cartoon drawings with ink cross-hatching, Morris depicts the child wearing yellow frames with red polka dots‘her choice, admittedly, but they are so outlandishly big on her face that it is little wonder she hates them. For a more humorous treatment of the subject, try Lane Smith's Glasses‘Who Needs 'Em? (Viking, 1991).‘Marianne Saccardi, Norwalk Community-Technical College, CT

"Luna and the Big Blur by Shirley Day is a good book for a child that might wear or need to wear glasses. The artwork by Don Morris illustrates the story perfectly. The author thoughtfully included notes from professionals on ways for parents to teach the numerous lessons incorporated in the book." --Portland Book Review
