Digby's Moon Mission by Renee Price

Thu 18 April 2019

Digby is a curious kid who wakes up one night to find that the dark is VERY dark! He looks out the window, sees that the moon is just a sliver and comes up with a plan to help. Find out what happens in this sweet, funny story written by Renee Price, illustrated by Anil Tortop.

In this tale of imagination and friendship, Renee helps us see the world through the eyes of a child. The Newcastle-based author and entertainer has a background in early childhood education and also performs theatrical adaptations of her stories at childhood services, schools and libraries.
