Have you ever wondered why

The moon shines in the night-time sky?

How every creature, plant and tree

Is subject to its mystery . . .


A gorgeous board book by award-winning author and illustrator Britta Teckentrup!


As the moon waxes and wanes above, the world below is full of busy night-time creatures; from turtles laying their eggs on white sandy beaches, to migrating birds using the moon to navigate their way to sunnier climes. Turn the peek-through pages to see the moon change shape as it goes through the lunar cycle! Lyrical text by Patricia Hegarty is paired with stunning artwork by the award-winning illustrator Britta Teckentrup to capture the beauty of moonlit nights from the desert to the depths of the ocean.


Also available in the Peek-through Nature series: Don’t miss the full range of stunning books that focus on the natural world, including Tree, Bee, Sea and Home!
