Impossible Moon, Hardback Book

Impossible Moon Hardback

Illustrated by Tonya Engel



A young girl undertakes an impossible trip to the moon, makes friends with the stars, and brings back something priceless in this gentle and lyrically told picture book about family, history, and memory. Grana used to tell the best stories, and Mabel used to long to soar through the heavens.

Nowadays, Grana mostly lies in bed and Mabel stays close to home.

But one day, Grana asks, "If we can touch the moon, then what is impossible?" So Mabel decides to do just that, embarking on a journey through the stars where The Seven Sistahs, The Big Dipper, and other constellations help her on her quest and teach her about African mythology and African American history.

With the support of her new companions, Mabel reaches for her biggest dream yet: to make her sick grandma well again.
