Magnolia Moon is very good at finding courage. And when you’ve fought with your best friend and your grandma is sick, it will take great courage to find a way forward.

Magnolia Moon returns with a story of the great daring it takes to be ten years old (almost eleven). Whether she’s helping a friend be brave, standing up to bullies or helping out at home, Magnolia shows readers how a little bit of courage can make life magical. A lyrical and imaginative tale which highlights everyday wonders through Magnolia's curious and observant nature.

Industry Reviews
The third Magnolia Moon book is lyrical and delightful, just like the first two. It is a gentle story that shows kids - and adults - that being brave comes in lots of shapes and sizes, and that it can make us feel anxious and uneasy, but there is also power in being brave and courageous. * Ashleigh Meikle *

Magnolia is an everyday child with everyday worries - but she tackles them with heart. Each chapter stands alone as little vignette of a situation where Magnolia has to find her inner courage, but also builds to a whole. Just lovely. * Sally Murphy *

...today I read all of The Courage of Magnolia Moon and as you can see I am giving it five stars. The final scene at the school dance is simply perfect. This is such a splendid series and I highly recommend you add them to your primary school library shelves. * Momo Time to Read *

While this story is quiet, it is also gentle and comforting. Each chapter is its own little story that links to the complete story. The lyricism is softly absorbing and shows kids that being brave comes in lots of ways. Magnolia Moon's courage is tender and always fearless.
