Little Bell and the Moon by Giles Paley-Phillips
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wonderful rhyming tale of a little girl, who grows up, gets old and turns into a bright star in the sky. This story touches upon a subject rarely dealt with in children's picture books in the most beautiful and positive way imaginable.

Synopsis

Little Bell and the Moon by Giles Paley-Phillips

Little Bell loves the Moon and the Moon loves Little Bell. Every night the Moon takes Little Bell s hand and together they cross the oceans and the mountains on their adventures. Little Bell grows old and frail but one last flight with the Moon makes something very special happen to Little Bell.

About the Author

Giles Paley-Phillips

Giles was born in East Sussex in 1977 and grew up on the south coast. He neglected his education to pursue a career in music. He spent a number of years performing extensively around the UK, including slots at the Glastonbury festival.

In 2006 Giles released a collection of lyrics and poems in aid of Leukaemia Research, a charity dear to his heart, having lost his mother to the disease when he was six. After the birth of his first son, and a chance encounter with a collection of nonsense poetry by Shel Silverstein in a charity shop, he was inspired to turn his attention to children’s writing.

His debut picture book was The Fearsome Beastie, which won the People's Book Prize 2012. His most recent book is Tamara Small and the Monster's Ball - click here to read an article in The Sun about Tamara, Giles and his passion for monsters.

He has also published a collection of nonsense poetry, There is a lion in my bathroom, with proceeds going to Leukaemia Research.

Giles still lives in Seaford with his wife, Michelle, and their two sons, Elijah and Sonny.

Here's the author surrounded by his enthusiastic audience on World Book Day:

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
