The Moonlight Zoo


Eva’s missing Luna desperately. It’s been two days since her little cat disappeared. Therefore when she’s disturbed by a noise beneath her bed, she is hopeful it’s Luna. However, a wolf appears, inviting her to join him as they look through The Moonlight Zoo for Luna.

Clues such as Luna’s love of sardines might be helpful, or they could lead to a penguin parade! Thereafter, there are missing elephants, wolf packs and parrots, but is Luna anywhere? Eva must move quickly, for the zoo disappears at daybreak…

Bookwagon loves Maudie Powell- Tuck and Karl James Mountford’s collaboration, Last Stop on the Reindeer Express. From the heart-warming storytelling to the intricate page shaping, colouring and cutouts, The Moonlight Zoo is a picture book to read, treasure and share. Bookwagon recommends this book highly as a gift selection.

Is it possible, therefore, that by stepping into this wonderland, Eva and Luna might be reunited?
