**Honour Book for the 2020 CBCA Awards Book of the Year for Younger Readers**

CBCA award-winning picture book author Edwina Wyatt makes her fiction debut with a whimsical tale of a curious little girl who shares more than just her surname with the moon: They're both excellent secret keepers.

Magnolia Moon is nine years old, likes Greek mythology, her best friend Imogen May (who understands the importance of questions like, "If you could be one fruit, any fruit, what would you be?"), wishing trees, and speaking crows. She knows instinctively that buffadillos are armadillos crossed with buffalos and believes there are walramingos living in her garden.

She's also the kind of person who can be entrusted with a great many secrets. Each chapter in this novel, which captures Magnolia's year of being nine and ends on Chapter Almost 10, reveals a secret that Magnolia is keeping. But the novel also chronicles a year of change for Magnolia. From her best friend moving to the birth of her little brother Finnegan, Magnolia navigates every challenge and secret that comes her way with the kind of authenticity and innocence that comes from being nine years wise.

  • A debut novel from an award-winning picture book author whose lyrical writing, sense of whimsy and warmth will delight fans of Karen Foxlee, Katherine Applegate, and Kate DiCamillo. 
  • Beautiful package: This hardcover book features cover and interior artwork – multiple black-and-white illustrations per chapter – by talented illustrator and textile designer Katherine Quinn. 
  • Everyone loves a secret, and each chapter in this book is structured around a different secret Magnolia is keeping. These aren't salacious secrets, they're the kind of secrets that help people feel braver, less alone, and more loved.
