    The winner of Book People's Bedtime Story Competition, Isabel Harris' The Moon Man is an exciting book and truly is one of a kind. It tells the tale of two sets of animal friends who view a scarecrow in very different ways...

    We asked children aged between 5 and 11 to let their imaginations run wild and write a picture book of between 200 and 800 words based around animals. This fantastic story, chosen by a panel of celebrity parents and publishing experts and illustrated by Ada Grey, is the judges' favourite and is perfect for reading at bedtime.

    Sold exclusively at BookPeople.co.uk, proceeds from this book will be donated to Action for Children, a UK charity which provides vital services, support and campaigns for disadvantaged children, young people and their families.

    Please note all orders containing The Moon Man will be despatched in their entirety from 1 June onwards.
