Musings on the Moon: Loony Rhymes for Playful Minds
Follow the curious and free-spirited Mau as he journeys across worlds and muses about interesting characters and situations.
Follow the curious and free-spirited Mau as he journeys across worlds and muses about interesting characters and situations. From serenading a dinosaur to battling a mighty swordfish, Mau rhymes about his adventures as he stumbles his way through fun and folly. With a knack for sniffing out the unusual, he draws lessons from life’s curious ironies and celebrates the will to push limits.
Light-hearted, playful, and sometimes profound, there is something in Mau’s tales for everyone. Young readers will love Mau’s quirky style as they rhyme along to the fun beat, while grown-ups may enjoy a deeper engagement with his philosophical musings.
Intricately hand-drawn in pen and ink, the illustrations convey fantastical scenarios that beautifully capture Mau’s encounters and the essence of his characterisation and stories with a charming style and classical simplicity.
