Mending the Moon

Illustrated by Sara Ugolotti (Page Street Kids, 2022)

One fateful night, the moon shines so big and so bright that it is too heavy to hold itself up in the sky. When it tumbles down and breaks into many glimmering pieces, Luna and Poppa must mend it, but they'll need the help of all the animals that live on the mountain. Together, can they find all the shards, stick them together, and get the moon safely back into the sky?

In this enchanting tale with a timeless, folklore feel, a girl, her grandfather, and all the mountain creatures hold the power to set the world right and forever leave their mark on the moon.

Publication date: 1 Nov 2022 (US), 5 Dec (UK), 31 Jan 2023 (Aus/NZ)

FUN FACT

Roald Dahl was my great uncle and a huge presence, inspiration and figure of general awesomeness in my early life. He taught me how to swim and how to see magic in ordinary things. He also dedicated The Twits to me, which was one of the MOST exciting things to happen to a 7-year-old bookworm ever!

Roald DahlInterview
00:00 / 05:08

This is a recording of me (age 10) interviewing my great uncle. He suggested I might like to do this and play it for my friends at school. We pretended it was a proper formal interview for a newspaper, so he called me Miss Pearl and I called him Mr Dahl. If you listen carefully you can hear our dog barking in the background!
