Annotation

Felix is scared by the thunder and lightning that comes with a big storm but fortunately has his torch to give him light. The shadows cast on his bedroom walls become his comforting friends and his imagination turns them into shadow puppets which take him on an adventure. He explores the wandering moon, the valleys and the mountains until it is time to return safely home. The book ends with information about the Shadow Puppets of many Asian countries as well as instructions to make your own Shadow Puppets including templates. The book ends with a ‘Word from the Author and Illustrator’ telling readers about their inspiration for this beautiful book.
