When Sun was out people did things, but when Moon appeared all they did was sleep! Moon isn’t happy – she too wants to be noticed. So starting from where the three seas meet at the tip of India, she goes to the mountains at the very top, trying to ruffle up waters to announce her presence. But nothing works. She then follows the advice of her ocean friends and works at what she is good at. She shines and shimmers, waxes and wanes… and soon people are singing songs and writing poems about her!

Proiti Roy’s luminous illustrations evoke the moon’s many magical moods, and the changing landscape as it travels across the country.

The excellent interweaving of fiction and non-fiction

The excellent interweaving of fiction and non-fiction makes it a book that children can grow up with. The story will keep the youngest of them engrossed while the subtle sprinkling of facts (about the moon, the landscapes of India and our oceans and seas) makes it interesting as children grow older.

An aura of myth and fantasy

Unhappy Moon is written in the manner of fables we read as children, creating an aura of myth and fantasy to explain natural phenomena. The play of light and darkness of the night sky in a clear night has been beautifully captured by Proiti Roy. It is a sweet story which can be used to launch discussions into natural phenomena... - "The Book Review"

A rare and delightful treat

A tightly woven travel story that will get your family to embark on an adventure with the moon as she moves to various locations around India. The narrative, without a glitch, comes back to where it all starts from... I thoroughly enjoyed poring over the rich, vibrant colours of the illustrations in this book. The lively play of colors makes each page a pleasure to pore over. Saffrontree.org
