The Moon Is a Ball
Stories of Panda & Squirrel
Philosophical, wise, funny, true-to-child and wonderfully illustrated stories about an unbreakable friendship between a panda and a squirrel, from two world greats of children’s literature.
Panda and Squirrel can’t live without each other and do everything together: lie on the rocks to look at the moon, take walks, play games. One of their journeys lasts for only two steps, another day they discover a newly hatched duckling. Sometimes they argue but they always make up again. This a friendship for any day: roaring, quiet, grumbling, snoring . . . always.
These down-to-earth, warmhearted friendship stories reach straight from the soul of one six-year-old to another.
Written by Ed Franck, one of Belgium’s most important and innovative children’s writers, and illustrated by The Tjong-Khing, a world-leading illustrator for children, whose many accolades include nomination for the Hans Christian Andersen Award.
