The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is Roald Dahl meets Alice in Wonderland in a quirky, laugh-out-loud story for boys and girls aged 7+. Packed with dragons, princesses and a whole host of hysterical characters, it's also perfect for reading aloud. It's a book that will sweep you off into an adventure full of daring rescues, narrow escapes and liquorice allsorts. Quite simply don't miss it.

But don't just take our word for it.

Here's a piece from the Commissioning Editor, Ben Horslen at Egmont who acquired it:

"The first time I read The Magnificent Moon Hare, I lost count of the nostril-rattling snorts of laughter I let out. Even now, months and many readings later, I'm still totally in love with its cast of unforgettably original characters - from P.J. the bad-tempered princess, to her rather chompy pet dragon Sandra (who's actually a boy), and the madcap, mercurial but utterly magnificent Moon Hare himself. The story is supported by fabulouosly quirky illustrations that brilliantly convey the off-beat humour of the book."

Synopsis

The Magnificent Moon Hare by Sue Monroe

The fabulous first book in an enchanting new comedy series, this is a future classic. 'I want fun and games and jokes and tricks and lots of fantastic stuff'! P.J. Petulant likes presents, crisps and getting her own way. But the pampered princess gets more than she bargains for when the magnificent Moon Hare whisks her off on a breathtaking adventure. With the help of Sandra the dragon (who's actually a boy), can P.J. rescue her father, King Winston, before he has his head cut off?

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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.

Angela East

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
