Book Awards

  • Shortlisted for Booktrust Early Years Award: Pre-school Award 2007.

Book Description

A small moonchild tires of his white, white moon surroundings and whizzes down to earth only to find it a shadow-dark place without colour. He meets Eliza, who reassures him that the morning will bring colour, and together they watch the sun rise while the little girl paints all they see. The moonchild returns home with their picture and the paintbox which he uses to bring colour to his world too. This is a life-affirming book from this award-winning artist.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A fanciful tale about color and friendship. The Moonchild complains to his mother that he wants colors instead of the "bright white" of the moon. So he zips down to Earth, which he sees through his telescope, and finds Eliza. But it's dark, and there are no colors. As the sun comes up, the Moonchild sees the sun, and flowers, and butterflies, and trees. Each color delights him, and Eliza paints them all into a picture for him. "Do you like that?" Eliza asks at each step; "I love that!" he responds, in a sweet refrain. Finally the Moonchild must go home, taking the picture and the paint box Eliza gives him so he can have color on the moon. The palette modulates from the pale moonscape to the shadowed night garden to brilliant purples and reds and greens. The narrative is significantly longer than most color concept books, but the blooming friendship between Eliza and the Moonchild and his delighted wonder lend sufficient substance to carry readers along. (Picture book. 4-7) (Kirkus Reviews)
