Book Description

A lonely moon accidentally falls to Earth, where he makes many new friends who help him back to the sky.

When a lonely moon, looking for a friend, accidentally falls to Earth, he finds the townspeople eager to help fix him and get him back to his home, the sky. A lyrical story in rhyming verse accompanied by unique, charming illustrations.

  • Lyrical, rhyming verse and a surreal story of the Moon coming down to Earth – and the rescue efforts to fix it – that will delight readers.
  • Charming and unique illustrations.
  • A sweet story about where the Moon disappears to each month, includes phases of the Moon.

“This friendship tale does double duty as a discussion starter about the phases of the moon.” —Kirkus Reviews (U.S.)

Like many great adventurers, Emily May, best known by her alter ego ‘The Nonsense Maker’. By day, you can spot her caffeine-fueled, roaming the inner laneways of Melbourne, Australia, and by night, she explores secret passageways winding to worlds only accessible in dreams.
