  • Short Description
Moar loves everything about autumn—except for the eerie moon. Moar wants to get home before the moon's in the sky, but with so much to do on the way, will there be time?
A fun and relatable story about a little boy’s fear of the unknown.

Moar has always loved autumn—playing outside with his friends, feeling the weather get colder—but there is one thing about autumn that really worries Moar. The moon. The days become shorter and the moon, with its creepy face and eerie smile, seems to be looking down on him before he can even get home from school! So, one day, Moar is determined to get home before the moon appears in the sky. But there are so many fun things to do on the way home, he may just run out of time!

A fun, funny, and relatable story that can help children understand their fears. New from the author of The Owl and the Lemming and Putuguq and Kublu and the Qalupalik!

Roselynn Akulukjuk was born in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, in the Canadian Arctic. In 2012, Roselynn moved to Toronto to pursue a career in film and attend the Toronto Film School, where she fell in love with being behind the camera. After finishing her studies and working in Toronto, Roselynn returned home to Nunavut, where she began working with Taqqut Productions, an Inuit-owned production company located in the capital of Nunavut, Iqaluit. Part of Roselynn’s love of filmmaking is the ability to interview elders, listen to their traditional stories, and share them with the world. In 2015, Roselynn wrote and directed her first film, the live-action and puppetry short The Owl and the Lemming, on which her book by the same title is based. Her film won Best Animation at the 2016 American Indian Film Festival.

Jazmine Gubbe is an illustrator from Ontario currently working in the animation industry. When she is not painting she is hiking, exploring nature, and learning the mysterious local history.

"A seasonal tale that will calm and comfort."—Kirkus Reviews

"Roselynn Akulukjuk...again takes us into Nunavut, not for a legend but instead for a quintessential experience for children"— CanLit for Little Canadians

"Young children will find it easy to relate to little Moar’s experiences of being scared of the unknown, such as the moon. Highly Recommended."—CM Magazine

"Misty watercolors juxtapose warm and cool tones to showcase the beauty of the Canadian Arctic in this tale of a little boy trying to outrun the moon. Little Moar is convinced that the moon, with its half-smile smirking down at him, is sinister, and he is determined to get home before it rises. With autumn upon them, the days are shorter, and Moar hurries through games with his friends and helping his cousin with chores before rushing into his mother’s arms, safe and sound."—Foreword Reviews
