A little girl gets the chance to see her late parents in this magical tale about grief and hope.
Ming Liang loses both her parents and longs to be with them. Follow her on her journey to the Moon Palace, where Moonfly Angel introduces Ming Liang to Moon Dragon – and gives her the chance to see her parents.
Ming Liang is now faced with an impossible choice: return home to Grandpa and Grandma, or remain at the Moon Palace with her parents whom she misses so badly.
What will Ming Liang choose? Moonchild is a whimsical tale filled with fairies, purple spoons with silver moons, and magic — and it is a work of love by former Straits Times journalist Leslie Sim. Months after his passing from a long-term illness, his widow found the manuscript and had it published.
The result is a whimsical tale filled with fairies, purple spoons with silver moons, and magic, as it takes young readers from grief to hope to love.
Read if you: or someone you know could use a reminder that loss is not the end of love.
