The Night the Moon Went Missing by Brendan Kearney - author video

DK are over the moon that The Night the Moon Went Missing has been selected as the Children’s Indie Book of the Month for November and we want to celebrate this with libraries and schools across the UK.

Meet Moon and a little girl, Lucy, in this enchanting picture book that teaches young children about the importance of the Moon.

With colourful illustrations by the super-talented Brendan Kearney, The Night the Moon Went Missing will inspire and captivate young readers. Its touching and uplifting message highlights how valuable everyone is and how much we mean to the people around us. The story also reveals why the Moon is so important to us all. It is the perfect bedtime story and an essential addition to every child’s bookshelf.

To mark publication, Brendan has created this magical animation of how he draws Moon and DK have some POS and digital activities to help create a lovely display. We would love children to share their drawings of the Moon on Instagram tagging DKBooks, readingagency and BrendanDraws. We will repost our favourites.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
