by Tohby Riddle
Clive Prendergast is a fox who lives successfully in the city, in a one-room apartment in a busy part of town. Humphrey is a donkey who works odd jobs and doesn't always have a fixed address. Life in the city is a mixed bag for these two, but a special looking blue envelope is about to change everything for one wonderful night. Nobody Owns the Moon is the story of their friendship. This modern classic picture book is a perfect marriage of text and image and timeless in its message of belonging and community.
Target age: 4 to 8
