Luna Loves Library Day

By Joseph Coelho
Illustrated by Fiona Lumbers

A special tale of father and daughter bonding and family separation.

Every week Luna looks forward to one special day: the day when she discovers magic among the library shelves; the day she gets to spend with her dad. Exploring the books, Luna and her dad find magic, mystery and even start to mend their own history. An inspiring story from one of the UK's greatest up-and-coming award-winning poets for children, perfectly captured in all its flights of fancy by newcomer Fiona Lumbers. Endorsed by Amnesty International: "This is a touching reflection on the power of reading to bring families together; Fiona Lumbers’ illustrations convey Luna’s vivid inner life, while Coelho’s lyrical style celebrates the joyful curiosity of early childhood." Amnesty International "An ode to love and different kinds of families, with lyrical text and richly coloured, warm illustrations." Irish Independent, Best Books of 2017

About the illustrator

Fiona has drawn on anything and everything from an early age and always insisted she would be an Artist Biography when she grew up. Fiona moved to London in 2000 to study for an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art. A combination of her obsession with picture books and the arrival of her first son led her down the path of illustration and she hasn't looked back since. othing makes her happier than splashing watercolours and inks and conjuring up new characters - often influenced by the exploits of her two sons.
