Synopsis

Pittipat's Saucer of Moon by Geraldine McCaughrean, Maria Nilsson

Pittipat knows that the moon is a saucer of cream and his brothers and sisters mean to drink it all up. So the brave little cat sets off to find them, sailing over giant waves and climbing the starry sky until he is face-to-face with the big dark night! A rhyming story full of magic, imagination and adventure that is a joy to read aloud. 'Geraldine McCaughrean knocks the socks off every other children's writer today.' Anne Fine

Reviews
