Meet Skig, who’s meant to be a warrior (but is really more of a worrier). Meet a giddy comet, skidding across the sky with her tail on fire. Put a marvellous new machine in your pocket and maybe you’ll be able to fix all your life’s problems.

Kate Wakeling’s first book of poems for children is full of curious characters and strange situations. The poems she writes are always musical, sometimes magical, and full of wonder at the weirdness of the world.

Moon Juice contains 25 poems and features bonus materials, including interviews with the author and the illustrator, and ideas for writing your own poems.

MEDIA REVIEWS

There’s a focussed precision in much of Kate’s writing that turns many of her poems into sharp injections of humour or close observation. Her words are gently juxtaposed with black and white illustrations by the Latvian artist Elīna Brasliņa. Expressive, playful and good at making you re-read the poem to see another of its strands, they play an important role in making this book appealing and approachable.Playing by the Book - Zoe Toft

A collection of poems by a new voice writing for children is an event to be celebrated. Moon Juice by the poet, Kate Wakeling is just such an event. However, these are not poems created to grab the attention with the quick laugh and a lot of noise; these are poems to seduce, to attract because they reflect the imagination of the young reader.
