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."


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?
