Once in a Blue Moon Summary

Once in a Blue Moon by Miranda Twist

Henry believes in trolls and magic, unlike his sensible sister Lucy and his dad who knows twenty-six reason why trolls don't exist. But Henry is right, there is magic in the wood behind their garden, magic that can turn evil when the moon is blue. Once in a blue moon anything can happen and now the moon is blue, magic is taking over and and Henry's dad gets turned into a pelican with the tail of a fox for going around saying that he knows twenty-six reasons why trolls don't exist.

Once in a Blue Moon Reviews

'A mad-dash fever dream of a book peppered with magic, fancy, and just a little bit of soul.' Kirkus Reviews. 'A wonderfully inventive story about the power of imagination with a touch of darkness that reminded me of The Enchanted Wood.' Alison Moore, author of the Lighthouse, short listed for the Man Booker prize.

About Miranda Twist

Miranda Twist grew up in the Scottish highlands. She studied Archaeology and Anthropology at Edinburgh University where she also ran the mythopoeic society. Once in a Blue Moon is her first book for children. 'I am a poet and a story teller. I began as a poet, writing my first poem when I was just six. Then I fell in love with stories and the magic of words. I like to paint with words in new and interesting ways that take the reader by surprise. You may find something funny and something really creepy side by side.'
