Eliza and the Moonchild

By Emma Chichester Clark

An exquisite and magical picture book about discovering colours and making friends from the inimitable Emma Chichester Clark, available in paperback for the first time.

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. A life-affirming book from this award-winning artist.

  • Eliza and the Moonchild has been shortlisted for the Booktrust Early Years Awards (winner to be announced in September) and the UKLA Children's Book Awards (winner to be announced in July).
  • Simultaneous publication with Emma Chichester Clark's new hardback, Minty and Tink.
