Under the Lemon Moon
by Edith Fine
illustrated by Rene Moreno


Rosalinda awakes one night to see a man stealing all the lemons from her family's lemon tree, leaving it stripped and damaged. Unsure what to do, she asks La Anciana, a wise woman, who shares a plan that will help the ailing tree and the thief who was stealing the fruit to feed his impoverished family.

Soft watercolor illustrations beautifully depict the Mexican countryside. "A moving tribute to the need for compassion and forgiveness."(Kirkus Reviews)
