“This is a book that should be on every young reader’s shelf; and adults should read it out loud, even in quiet moments, and secluded spaces, only to themselves.”
“…the lessons this tiny feather imparts nudges their way into your heart and soul upon the whisper of a soft breeze. You will embrace them fully, and never forget the tiny voice who whispered it all to you, perhaps in a dream.”
“I liked the moth king because he told Luna that we all love your gentle brightness, and please come back. It sounded like they actually loved Luna. At first it seemed liked no one liked her, but then it turned out that everyone loved her.”
“it’s so helpful to read about strong, quiet heroes like Naio who also struggle with real fears.”
“…a tender, lovely, exuberantly delicate storybook that reminds one of the true nature of friendship.”
“I loved this story and the underlying theme of acceptance. It feels very familiar and relevant in this moment.”
“I love all the different stories about Luna. It’s a wonderful way to present the idea that we all understand the world through our different circumstances, locations, and experiences.”
This book was made possible through a Kickstarter in July 2020.
