Adventures in the Moonlight by Patrick Hunt

Adventures in the Moonlight is a magical story about a boy called Joe who one day forms a tortoise from clay in the garden. That night, the moonlight brings the tortoise to life. Joe and the tortoise play together before the tortoise teaches Joe his unique secret for long life. Inspired by this, Joe moulds other animals from clay who, in turn, teach him their life lessons too. This charming, modern story is derived from the ancient wisdom of Taoism which looks to nature for inspiration and guidance on how to live good lives. Adventures in the Moonlight is a wise and gentle book, perfect for those who want to breath spirit into the next generation. This book would suit younger children - whose parents can read the book to them as a story book - but would also suit older children who can read and explore ideas and concepts individually or under guidance.
