Description

“Luna Loves Library Day addresses this BIG grief, Luna’s parents breaking up, which, for many children, can be their first loss. And so I was so grateful to see books themselves offer company, comfort and support with that very thing. Not all families look the same – and that is a great message to celebrate.” Laura Dockrill

Endorsed by Amnesty International:
“This is a touching reflection on the power of reading to bring families together; Fiona Lumbers’ illustrations convey Luna’s vivid inner life, while Coelho’s lyrical style celebrates the joyful curiosity of early childhood.” Amnesty International

Every week Luna looks forward to one special day: the day when she discovers magic among the library shelves; the day she gets to spend with her dad. Exploring the books, Luna and her dad find magic, mystery and even start to mend their own history.

An inspiring story from one of the UK’s greatest up-and-coming award-winning poets for children, perfectly captured in all its flights of fancy by newcomer Fiona Lumbers.

“An ode to love and different kinds of families, with lyrical text and richly coloured, warm illustrations.” Irish Independent, Best Books of 2017
