Anathilde and her sister Rose have invited their friends Emile and Philemon round to play. When Anathilde tells them the story of her journey to space with the Moon King, Emile doesn’t believe her. But suddenly, the spaceship on the merry-go-round in the park takes off! And the four friends are launched into the sky on a wonderful journey…

On the moon, they visit the city of the Lunars and discover their strange habits. There, they meet the toy-stealing Moon King, his huge dinosaur Croquette and, above all, a strange robot…

The Moon King characters are back for more adventures! Bérengère Cournut and Donatien Mary’s first book was published in 2019 and awarded at the International Bologna Book Fair. Donatien Mary’s bright illustrations bring Bérengère Cournut’s writing to life in a new, funny and happy picture book.
