Product Details


Quill & Quire Best Kids’ Book of the Year, Booksellers’ Pick (2017)
One of CCBC’S Best Books for Kids & Teens (2018)

“The illustrations, with their burnished waning light, and the clipped-short narrative combine to create an atmosphere that for anyone who has experienced it will feel pitch-perfect.” —STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

“Harbridge uses language to create a space where magic happens, providing an opportunity for extraordinary things to occur in an ordinary world… An exquisite selection for older elementary readers.” –STARRED REVIEW, School Library Journal

“[A] luminous story of friendship and full-moon magic… Artist Matt James creates a winter wonderland in breathtaking illustrations that have texture and a sense of mystery. This one-of-a-kind moonlit adventure is sure to capture young imaginations.” —Bookpage

“4/4… Harbridge takes the reader on a little journey to the pond along with the children from the community… We enjoy the game along with the children and feel and see all that they do thanks to the descriptive writing… Matt James’ rich illustrations strengthen the story as, through his use of colour, they help us to imagine the depth of the cold… Serve with a cup of hot chocolate… Highly recommended.” –CM Magazine
