Editorial Reviews


"A spiked children's classic, and an utter delight ... A beautifully written, exquisitely touching but gently humorous novel." -- Dinah Hall The Sunday Telegraph "Zany, thought-provoking, and humorous, Moon Pie is a high impact novel. Vivid characterisation and an assured, lively and sometimes lyrical tone create a wholly convincing backdrop for Martha who is struggling to keep her family on track through her father's alcoholism. Incisive observations combined with perfectly timed comedic movements make this a sure winner." -- Jake Hope The Bookseller "A subtle book that is very moving at but also full of wit, life and, above all, love." -- Marcus Sedgwick The Guardian "Outstanding ... This is a book that addresses painful events with a wonderfully ebullient comic touch ... It's Mason's gift for the way that people, especially children, speak and think that makes the book gripping and absorbing ... [It] addresses a difficult subject with a vigour and charm that will beguile any child interested in real life. The opposite of grim, its originality, tone and ebullience deserves prizes as well as praise." -- Amanda Craig The Times "This is a beautifully told story that is long on affection and short on preaching." -- Julia Eccleshare The

Format: Hardcover
This "ultra modern" story explores what happens when a young child's only guardian, in this case, a father, starts to lose his mind as he suffers from mental illness. The writing is poignant, yet simple and clear. I recommend reading it aloud to children ages 9 and up.
