About The Book

When a charming lunar visitor arrives in the town of Poppygold, most people refuse to talk to the new arrival because he looks so strange. Luckily, one curious boy decides that he will let Moonboy speak for himself.

Through Ed Bread’s bravery, the town learns an important lesson about true friendship and the dreams within our hearts.

Readers of all ages will love joining Moonboy on his interplanetary search for a friend.
