A delightful book for little 'uns. -- Natasha Harding * THE SUN * Dealing with young insomniacs, this charming story is illustrated with jewel-like colours bathed in the moon's silver light. * Country & Town House * A short, simple text that will delight tiny tots before bed * Books for Keeps * An engaging bedtime read to nod off to. -- James Lovegrove * Financial Times * It's a great little bedtime story that I think will resonate well with preschool and primary school age children, and the bright, vivid illustrations from Ben Cort (the illustrator behind Aliens Love Underpants) are sure to keep kids engaged. -- A Mummy Too The book has something quite magical about it and I am sure all children will grow to love the story. I am sure in time this book will become a bedtime classic in many a child's home and for this reason we give it 5/5. -- The Soup Dragon The style of illustrations inside is really appealing - very bright and with lots of detail. A really lovely book for children aged around 2-5 years, I would definitely recommend it as a great edition to the bookshelf! -- In The Playroom I just read "Do You Speak English Moon?" with my mummy and really loved it. The boy was a bit like me because we like the same things. He loves chocolate ice cream and I do too. He could be my friend. Sometimes he feels like it's hard to get to sleep and I do too. He speaks to the moon to help him. I wish I could speak to the moon. -- Story Star reviewer, Shira (5 years) I thought it was fantastic and brilliant! I really liked the picture of the ice cream slide. -- Story Star reviewer, Cleo (5 years) The book is written in fairly simple language and with only a few sentences per page. Mr Z (5) was able to read the whole book to us at bedtime, so he felt proud of himself and it's great that this book was quite easily achievable for him to read and the story also held his interest, as well as my younger boys (3 and 2). We were sent a hardback edition with an illustrated dust jacket cover, which would make a lovely gift. The style of illustrations inside is really appealing - very bright and with lots of detail. A really lovely book for children aged around 2-5 years, I would definitely recommend it as a great addition to the bookshelf! -- Story Star review, Anna Marikar Abigail loved the colourful vibrant pictures. She especially liked the page with an "Ice Cream" park on It. She also liked the City scene looking at all the different windows and all the different boys and girls. This book is currently Abigail's number 1 choice for a bedtime story. -- Story Star reviewer, Abigail (3 years) A nice book for younger children. Lovely pictures and things you can talk about on each page. Great bed time story. -- Story star reviewer, Victoria Charlie particularly enjoyed this, he could identify with the little boy and his questions! We use looking at the moon to help him sleep anyway. It is simple, colourful and engaging and has been read several times already. -- Story star reviewers, Charlie, Amy and Julie We loved the beautiful illustrations. -- Story Star reviewers, Xavier and Francisco Tiny tots will enjoy these large luscious spreads of night time fantasy. There are lovely scenes to look at including deep-diving mermaids and cloud-topped mountains, smiling tigers and lots of happy children all looking out to the moon. -- Booktrust From a dynamic author/illustrator combo; a lovely bedtime story: a little boy sharing his favourite things with the Moon until falling asleep. A complete joy. -- Angels and Urchins * Angels and Urchins *
