ABOUT THE BOOKWhen Sun was out people did things, but when Moon appeared all they did was sleep! Moon doesn’t like it. She wants to be noticed. So starting from where the three seas meet at the tip of India she goes to the mountains at the very top, trying to ruffle up waters and get attention. But it doesn’t work! She then follows the advice of her ocean friends and works hard at what she’s good at. She shines and shimmers, waxes and wanes – and soon people are singing songs and writing poems about her!
- An imaginative story of what Moon does to get noticed when she sees Sun getting all the attention.
- The excellent interweaving of fiction and non-fiction makes it a book that children can grow up with. The story will keep the youngest of them engrossed while the subtle sprinkling of facts (about the moon, the landscapes of India and our oceans and seas) makes it interesting as children grow older.
- Proiti Roy’s radiant illustrations makes everything in the book come alive, be it the moon, the sun, the people, the creatures and the oceans. The gasp-inducing doublespread of the faces of the moon is a visual treat worthy of framing.
- This picture book was shortlisted in the Best Picture Book: Story category at The Hindu Young World-Goodbooks Awards 2018.
