A big sister finds that even in a place as lonely as the moon, all you need is a little creativity—and someone to play with—in Molly on the Moon, the debut picture book from award winning sci fi author Mary Robinette Kowal.
I am delighted to share the cover of my upcoming children’s book, Molly on the Moon! Illustrated by Diana Mayo, Molly will be heading to the moon in April 2022. I am in love with Diana’s art, and I can’t wait for you all to see the finished book.
When Molly and her family move to the moon, they can only pack the essentials—just one toy each for Molly and her baby brother, Luke.
Luckily, Molly has a big imagination. A packing crate becomes a fort, a tarp becomes a witch’s cape, and some cans become a tea set. Baby Luke, on the other hand . . . has blocks.
Molly doesn’t want to share. At first. But then she realizes that when you’re on the moon—or anywhere else—a big imagination and being with someone you love can be infinitely better than all the toys in the universe.
Molly on the Moon is recommended for children ages three through six.
