“Biscuit Moon is an allegory on migration. Believe in something badly enough and the mind can play tricks on you. A tale about Buffalo and Lion and the delicious biscuit: to fight for an illusion or co-operate for a better life. Enebor Attard’s English interpretation is designed for reading aloud by children new to English with a lot of repetition and gradual build-up of vocabulary. 34 home languages, embedded with Jesus Gaban’s brilliant illustrations, will ensure that the book stands proud on any bookshelf.
The story links to contemporary events. “Someone else sees the biscuit,” is said by Lion, the strongest, as well as by wise Squirrel, who later leads the group away from drought. And all the while greedy Vulture waits to clean up!”
