Good morning my loves!
I have you’ve had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend ahead. Firstly, I must apologise for the lateness of this post. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that we’ve been waiting several weeks to find out whether or not my mother had the big C. Thankfully, yesterday (Friday) we had the all clear! Yesterday I think I just needed to take the day to let it all sink in, but now I’m back with another blog tour post for you! Today is my stop on the tour for Harvey and the Moon Bus by Jill Stanton-Huxton!
Harvey sees his friends, Chester and Nelly, heading for the corner shop and boarding the Moon Bus, so he decides to join them. Harvey sits next to a grumpy grey rabbit. The Moon Bus takes off and flies through space and lands on the Moon and they all head off to The Moon Rock Sweet Emporium in Moon Crater Alley. Harvey loses Chester and Nelly – so when he sees the grey rabbit heading for a nearby circus tent he decides to follow him, where he meets a small mouse called Gretel. But they only have 15 minutes to reach the Moon Bus before it leaves for the day! Gretel tells him the magic mats on the Helter Skelter will take them to the Moon Bus really quickly. The magic mat flies over the cobbled streets towards a huge crater but Gretel falls out of Harvey’s pocket and starts plummeting to the ground. Harvey manages to grab her safely. As the Moon Bus is about to take off, Harvey uses the last of his three wishes to catch it and jumps on board.. They look out of the window and see the grey rabbit running along the runway after the Moon Bus… But will he catch it in time?
I’ve always loved children’s books. There has always been something completely magical about them and they never fail to transport me back to being a child, and all of the adventures I had and dreamed of. I frequently find myself wishing I was a child again, the limitless hope, the boundless joy. Who wouldn’t want that?
Harvey is the sweetest little grey cat that is just so caring, kind and helpful something that I adore seeing in children’s books. I particularly loved the fact that Harvey helped out little Gretel, despite her being a mouse!
For a children’s books to be a real hit with me, it must have some more foundation, and this books has them in abundance. To be kind to others, whether or not they are different from you, that it’s okay not to be perfect and it’s okay to ask for help if you’re struggling with something.
Harvey and the Moon Bus was a true joy to read and this wonderful story, for both children and adults, the beginning in a new series, promises to be a firm favourite in my house, and with future children, for years to come.
Peace and pages
