A little boy getting ready for bed looks up at the moon and wonders whether it can speak English as it shines all over the world. He tells the moon about his day - it's not lonely falling asleep when you share your day's adventures with the moon.

In the media
From a dynamic author/illustrator combo; a lovely bedtime story: a little boy sharing his favourite things with the Moon until falling asleep. A complete joy.

Tiny tots will enjoy these large luscious spreads of night time fantasy. There are lovely scenes to look at including deep-diving mermaids and cloud-topped mountains, smiling tigers and lots of happy children all looking out to the moon.


We loved the beautiful illustrations.

Charlie particularly enjoyed this, he could identify with the little boy and his questions! We use looking at the moon to help him sleep anyway. It is simple, colourful and engaging and has been read several times already.
