The Moon Is a Ball – Stories of Panda and Squirrel (PREORDER)

$29.99

Philosophical, wise, funny and wonderfully illustrated stories about an unbreakable friendship between a panda and a squirrel, from two world greats of children’s literature.

Panda and Squirrel can’t live without each other and do everything together: lie on the rocks to look at the moon, take walks, play games. One of their journeys lasts for only two steps, another day they discover a newly hatched duckling. Sometimes they argue but they always make up again. This is a friendship for any day: roaring, quiet, grumbling, snoring…always.

This down-to-earth, warmhearted friendship story reaches straight from the soul of one six-year-old to another.

Written by Ed Franck, one of Belgium’s most important and innovative children’s writers, and illustrated by Thé Tjong-Khing, a world-leading illustrator for children, whose many accolades include nomination for the Hans Christian Andersen Award.
