Join us upstairs Saturday, October 21st at 11 am for storytime with Denise Gallagher!

This event is free and open to the public.

Moonsong is a brightly illustrated lyrical tale with an old world feel about friendship, music, and natural harmony.

Fulki’s village lost its moon. But Fulki knows a secret. She befriended a tiger who taught her the Moonsong. But the townspeople forbid befriending wild beasts- with teeth and claws and no manners at all. And, the townspeople forbid singing of any kind, for it calls the wild beasts. Will Fulki’s friendship with a tiger and their song bring back the long-lost moon?

Follow Fulki and her forbidden friendship with a wild beast, a tiger, as they learn from each other love, acceptance and what it means to bring harmony to our natural world.
