Synopsis

Do You Speak English, Moon? by Francesca Simon

A little boy getting ready for bed looks up at the moon and wonders whether it can speak English as it shines all over the world. He tells the moon about his day - it's not lonely falling asleep when you share your day's adventures with the moon.

Reviews

A delightful book for little 'uns. -- Natasha Harding * THE SUN * Dealing with young insomniacs, this charming story is illustrated with jewel-like colours bathed in the moon's silver light. * Country & Town House * A short, simple text that will delight tiny tots before bed * Books for Keeps * An engaging bedtime read to nod off to. -- James Lovegrove * Financial Times * It's a great little bedtime story that I think will resonate well with preschool and primary school age children, and the bright, vivid illustrations from Ben Cort (the illustrator behind Aliens Love Underpants) are sure to keep kids engaged. -- A Mummy Too The book has something quite magical about it and I am sure all children will grow to love the story. I am sure in time this book will become a bedtime classic in many a child's home and for this reason we give it 5/5. -- The Soup Dragon The style of illustrations inside is really appealing - very bright and with lots of detail.
