This book is a fun rhyming book for children, all about a baboon who has made his home on the moon. Edgar St Neeze is an inquisitive baboon. Having considered the frequently asked question of whether the moon is made of cheese, he is determined to prove that it is. Follow Edgars adventures and discover whether or not he is successful in this hilarious and engaging book.

Claire lives in Buckinghamshire with her husband, two children and two guinea pigs. She has a love for reading and always had a dream of writing her own books. After having children, Claire began making up her own bedtime stories for them, which they loved to listen to, and as they grew, her children said she should write them down. This was the inspiration she needed to finally pursue her dream of writing. When she can find a moment to herself, Claire loves to read, be in the garden or go for a run.

    I’ve just got hold of a copy of this gem of a book. I can’t wait to read it to my Reception class. Children always love adventures in space. This one has the advantage of being written in rhyme, an important skill for children to develop so that they are able to make predictions when they are reading. I also like the way ‘bum’ rhymes with ‘tum’ on page nine. That will certainly get everyone’s attention!

    We really enjoyed reading this as a family. Long enough to sit down and read but short enough to keep younger children attention, especially being in rhyming verse. Clear, striking illustrations with a practical question answered!

    Cute little story, with great pictures. Our kids love listening to it, and we have read it over and over again.


    Baboon on the Moon is the perfect length to read with small children with short attention spans and I know from experience that any book that mentions a “big red bum” in the opening pages will have children giggling and engaged in the story.

    The illustrations are bright and cheerful and each page has a short amount of rhyming text. Just the right length for a bedtime story or as part of an afternoon story session. I think books with animals as the central character are always going to be a hit and I think small children (ages 3-6) would love this book!
