Synopsis

The Moon Shines Out of the Dark by Stephanie Dowrick

Harry loves to know when things are going to happen. Exactly. Mum usually says 'Time to get up', 'Time for the bus' and 'Time to sleep now, Harry'. But Mum's been away for ages. And Harry has had to guess what's coming next. One cold, cloudy night, Harry stays awake, thinking and wondering. Will the moon shine out of the dark? Beautifully illustrated and tenderly told, this heartwarming story of a little boy and his parents is a stunning collaboration by two bestselling and award-winning creators.
