The Lovereading4Kids comment
In an Nutshell : cats – adventure - friendship Readers who enjoy Michael Morpurgo’s stories of animals facing challenges in the natural world will find lots to like in Emma Cox’s debut, which was the first recipient of the National Literacy Trust New Children’s Author prize. The Moon recognises that black cat Malkin’s kindness and love for others makes him special, and marks him out with a white collar. Malkin is indeed brave and good, and in the course of his adventures helps many creatures, not just cats, risking his lives but finally finding love and happiness. Malkin and his companions are appealing central characters, and atmospheric illustrations by Rohan Eason add to the charm of this animal adventure.
If they like Malkin Moonlight they'll also enjoy The Worst Witch!
Malkin Moonlight by Emma Cox
Every journey begins with a paw step ...A small black, with a magnificent tail, Malkin is destined to be a hero. He just doesn't know it yet. On his third life, Malkin falls in love with a Domestic, Roux. Together they explore the night and have adventures. But when Roux's owners decide to move away she chooses to become a Wild and live with Malkin. Setting out to find a new home, they stumble across a recycling centre full of cats - at war. Can Malkin realise his destiny and find a way to bring peace to the land? An extraordinary adventure awaits ...
In 2014 Bloomsbury Children’s Books and The National Literacy Trust launched The New Children’s Author Prize. Members of the public were invited to submit stories for 8-12 year olds with a chance to win a publishing contract with Bloomsbury. The competition raised over £20,000 for the National Literacy Trust and their vital work of improving literacy across the country.
Emma Cox was crowned the winner at a ceremony in May 2015 with her delightful middle-grade novel Malkin Moonlight.
