Bekah and the Moon

Illustrated by Abeeha Tariq

About The Book

A moving and magical picture book about the love between a young girl and the moon

“Luna’s here, there’s no need to fear.”

Bekah loves the moon, and she knows the moon loves her too. Each night, when shadows or strange noises frighten her, she is visited by Luna, who bathes the room in moonlight and chases away her fears. But as Luna appears less and less often, Bekah begins to doubt whether her love was ever real. When Luna returns, Bekah finds that even when someone can’t always be by your side, their love never leaves you.

From the author of Daddy Do My Hair and the highly acclaimed Onyeka series, Tolá Okogwu, and FAB prize shortlisted illustrator, Abeeha Tariq.
