2012 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards: Gold Medal Winner

“Tales, unlike stories, never lie. You see, a tale is an account of things in their due order, often divulged secretly, or as gossip. Would you like to hear one?” —Lord Autumn

Uncle Ebb was so good at telling his tales of the Moon Realm that Lily and Jasper used to wonder if he’d been there himself. But as teenagers, they’re beyond all that—up until the moment they’re plunged into the fantastic bedtime tales of their youth. Now, armed with nothing more than memories—and the moon coin—Lily and Jasper must piece together Uncle Ebb’s shattered tales and unite the fractured Moon Realm, or lose the moons they loved so much . . . all over again.

Illustrated by Carolyn Arcabascio. Volume One of the The Moon Realm Series

Praise for The Moon Coin

..

“If I had to compare The Moon Coin to any other work, I’d say it is a cross between Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings. It reads very well for middle grade and younger YA, like Narnia, with the immense fantasy of LOTR. The imagery is so captivating, Lily is so mature, and the reader is swept along [on] her adventure as if we are riding the Rinn or facing the dragon ourselves. It is everything you want a great fantasy to be and then some.”

Gathering Leaves Reviews (5 Stars)

..

“The Moon Coin was Middle-Grade Fantasy at its best! The world Richard Due created was lush and overflowing with imagination and wonder. This story puts you in a fantasy overload, full of creatures and places you only dream about existing. When I was a kid I would have annihilated this book, slept with it under my pillow, and carried it with me at school.”

Sizzling Reads (5 Flames)

..

“The Moon Coin, fast, furious and immensely enjoyable, reminded me of what I love about fiction. . . . The way Mr. Due has crafted his tale is wickedly enthralling, with a touch of what we know added into the larger mix of what we don’t, we get to discover everything right along with Lily (and eventually Jasper). There are surprises around every corner and by taking the more difficult theme of division, forcible annexation and the underlying currents of coloring up the truth, Mr. Due has made The Moon Coin into a story that is deeply layered and developed as much as it is entertaining and delightful.”

In the Closet with a Bibliophile (5 Stars)

..

“. . . I fell in love with the hand drawn illustrations. Call me old fashioned, but I really miss the days when all illustrations looked like these. Computers are a fantastic invention (without them this ebook wouldn’t exist) but I sure do miss the gorgeous fruits of someone talented’s labor. Carolyn Arcabascio’s illustrations really bring the story to life. They are that little link that makes all the difference in becoming immersed in the story.”

Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile (5 Stars)

..

“The world of the Moon Realm is so wonderfully detailed and vivid that you have no trouble imagining everything that Lily is going through. The book also includes really fantastic illustrations. The world building is really awesome and is most definitely a stand out feature of this book.”

A Bookish Affair (4.5 Stars)

Carolyn Arcabascio muses on illustrating The Moon Coin:

Click HERE or the image directly above to read her post.

..
Richard Due: Looking through a batch of Carolyn Arcabascio sketches, with the intent of winnowing away chaff, is a trying task namely because: THERE ISN’T ANY CHAFF! Time and again, I would put two final candidates side-by-side on my biggest monitor and stare at them for what felt like hours, waiting for one of them to mess up . . . you know . . . sneeze or something, maybe drop a prop Carolyn had drawn in—ANYTHING to make it easier for me to choose! But no dice! It was one of those times, while staring at the screen for what felt like hours, that the smoky voice of Stones rocker Keith Richards first visited me. It was like he was leaning over my shoulder, staring along with me, only his words were from a Terry Gross interview in which he’d been asked to choose a favorite between two Stones classics:  “I love ’em both, honey. Don’t make me cut the babies in half.”

There are twenty-one pieces of chapter art in The Moon Coin. Let me tell you: I spent a lot of time this summer with Keith Richards’ voice in my head talking about cutting babies in half. And I can’t wait to do it all over again on The Dragondain. But this time I’m going to go for summoning the stern voice of Mary Poppins. I have a hunch she’ll be an excellent decision maker. 😉
