The year is 1212 and it has been a terrible summer: cold, wet and miserable. Why is it always raining? What has happened to the sun? Hubert is a small hare who doesn't know very much, and certainly doesn't know the answers to such difficult questions. One night Hubert has a strange meeting with the moon; she comes down from the sky and asks Hubert to help her to make the sun shine and save the farms and meadows from storms and floods. This is the beginning of a long adventure for Hubert and his friends, Petronella and Benedict. They embark on their journey across the rain-soaked countryside of medieval England to find the sun. Surprisingly, lots of other people are travelling around too. Eustace the Monk is a pirate who travels back and forth across the Channel, helping himself to treasure and stolen goods. A strange musician can be seen and heard wandering through the lanes, according to some itinerant rats, followed by lots of children. There are merchants, crusading knights on horseback, dogs, cats, camels and crocodiles. Even when Hubert and his friends think that they are all alone, they are not...Their quest to find the sun ends inside a secret chamber within the largest pyramid in Egypt where they see an extraordinary show from the ancient world. Finally, after all their exciting adventures, Hubert and his friends make yet another discovery - which is how good it is to be home again. Hubert and the Moon is a delightful children's fantasy tale aimed at readers aged 7-9. The book, which ends with interesting facts about the real 13th century people and places that provide the background for Hubert's adventure, also contains educational elements. It is beautifully illustrated throughout, in both colour and black & white.
