Description

A Moonchild blows a bubble that pops on an Earth baby and surrounds him in silence. He cannot hear or speak. His parents, a King and Queen, are devastated when they realize but a Moonbird teaches the little prince how to use his hands and eyes to communicate. This is a beautifully written story about deafness, sumptuously illustrated by Jane Ray.

Author Biography

Joyce Dunbar is a widely respected author of more than fifty books for children. Her Mouse and Mole series has been very popularly adapted for television and her lyrical re-telling of the Nativity story, This is the Star, received widespread critical acclaim. She has also collaborated with artist Debi Gliori for several picture books for the Doubleday/Picture Corgi list, including Tell Me Something Happy. Joyce is profoundly deaf. Jane Ray was born in Chingford, North East London. After a degree course at Middlesex University in Ceramics and 3-D Design she began her career by designing greeting cards. Jane's first picture book A Balloon for Grandad was shortlisted for the prestigious Mother Goose Prize for first-time book illustrators. Jane's illustration style is instantly recognisable and she is well known internationally. The rights to her books are sold throughout the world and she has gained as much success in America as she has in the UK. Jane lives in London with her husband, a music conductor, and their three children.
