In this fresh story with the feel of a timeless legend, the moon falls out of the sky and shatters, and a granddaughter, grandfather and assortment of forest creatures must use their creativity to put it back together.
Emma Pearl has been writing about the moon since she was a young
girl. Today, she lives in Toko, New Zealand in the shadow of Mount
Taranaki, a mountain much like the one where Luna and Poppa find
the broken moon. She finds inspiration for her stories everywhere,
but especially in her children. This is her debut picture book.
Sara Ugolotti loves watching the moon, especially in those moments when it is brightly colored and big. When she's not working as a full-time illustrator, she also enjoys photography, travel, and cooking. The books she has illustrated include The Story Thief (Bloomsbury) and Up in the Air (DK Books). Sara lives in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
