“Ever since Luna first came into our lives with her passion for books in ‘Luna Loves Library Day’ in 2017 we have felt that this series, by super-duo author Joseph Coelho and illustrator Fiona Lumbers, embodies so much of the Moon Lane mission with inclusivity and empathy wrapped up in the joy of reading and children seeing themselves in a book. ‘Luna Loves Art’ was a bestseller for us in 2020, followed by ‘Luna Loves World Book Day’ in 2021, and we are absolutely thrilled to continue our support and collaboration with Andersen Press, Joseph and Fiona for ‘Luna Loves Dance’ and beyond…”– Nicci Rosengarten, Creative Director, Moon Lane Group
