“Renee Price has once again created a super fun adventure that skillfully teaches without teaching. This time ’round, there are instruments to explore and music to enjoy as Digby’s friends twang, plink, plonk and doomp to a special rhyming beat. Anil Tortop’s illustrations are, again, simply stunning. Her work is colourful and vibrant, and it has a magical ability to draw your eyes from across the room. I love that every page has a different, brightly coloured background, and I can’t rave enough about the simple yet detailed expressions Tortop creates to convey the curiosity, astonishment and delight the characters experience throughout the book.”
– Shaye Wardrop; Kids’ Book Review
“It’s easy to see that a lot of thought has gone into this book’s educational and musical aspects, and this allows it to be used as a base for a number of class activities. With the themes of friendship, music, and with time and counting thrown in, this is a cute, educational book that can be enjoyed in many ways.”

– Renee Mihulka; CBCA Reading Time Online

“This picture book is pure joy and total happiness. Renee’s words move the story along at quite a fast pace – adventures are like that! And Anil Tortop has plenty of fun surprises to find on each page. 
What a talented woman Renee Price is: She wrote the story, she wrote the lyrics, co-wrote the music with Aaron Hipwell, sang the lyrics along with some very cute children… and she is even available for visits to anywhere children hang out, like libraries, kinders, schools etc. to do a stage show – amazing !! I guess you can say you get the whole package with this book.”

“This amusing picture book exudes the naiveté and enthusiasm of childhood. The charming text is enhanced by the use of rhyme which helps to move along the pace of the story and maintain the reader’s interest while Anil Tortop’s colourful full page illustrations capture the joy and wonderment of childhood.”
– John Nolan; CBCA Reading Time

“Renee Price’s text delightfully integrates a mix of fun, age-appropriate vocabulary and dialogue with whimsical rhyming prose. Illustrations by Anil Tortop are colourful, humorous and expressive; perfectly suiting the action and wit in the storyline. Digby’s Moon Mission is a ‘super-duper’, charming and imaginative story; exploring teamwork, diversity and plenty of teachable concepts.”
– Romi Sharp; Boomerang Books

“With gorgeous illustrations and a touch of rhyme making it fun to read aloud, Digby’s Moon Mission is a celebration of imagination and a great bedtime story, children will enjoy reading again and again.”
– Coral Vass; Kids’ Book Review

“The story is spliced with simple rhyme that kids will no doubt enjoy, as they journey with Digby and his friends. Young children seem to be enamoured with the moon in all its phases, so I loved the premise of this book.  It gives a great talking point for all those little star gazers out there.”
– Julie Grasso; Independent Author

“From the first reading, my boys were captivated by how Digby would solve his problem. My younger child ‘read’ what happened next by looking at the amazing pictures, while my older child found words he can recognise and attempted to sound out unknown words.”

  1. Vicki

    What a great story and gorgeous illustrations .. Each time you read it you discover something new… Love Digby

  2. Gail Hallinan

    A fantastic book for young and old! It inspires the imagination in its creativity.
    It promotes integration across curriculum areas in that you can use it for
    Literacy, – text type, rhyme, alliteration;
    Maths – counting, days of the week, measurement;
    Science- investigation of the moon;
    PDHPE – food groups, relationships; and of course
    Art – the illustrations are inspiring
    But for just good old enjoyment of reading a favourite book with someone or even by yourself it is certainly worth having on your bookshelf!

  3. Sarah

    This my son (Eli Digby) new favourite book – he thinks it is written about him and every night at bed time when we read it he has to go to the window and “check his dark”
    Thanks Renee – what a gorgeous book !!

  4. Ann

    An incredible book, enjoyed by the whole family. What a truly colourful adventure to share with Digby each night. A well thought and articulated book. Thank you for the creativity and imagination. 🙂

  5. Alyssa

    Digby was a winner on the first night but then Mr. 4 couldn’t go past his favourite ‘The Waterhole’ and we were back to reading that every night (he gets a kick out of how clever the illustrations are and finding all the hidden animals). But tonight, I walked in to his room and he had Digby on his bed ready to go. After we read it (and he burped extremely loudly at the end) he said ‘Mum this is the best book ever now ok?’ That’s a big win for Digby

  6. Adam

    I really enjoyed Digby, the story and illustrations work together beautifully. Awesome!

  7. Nicole

    Wow…We have a new favourite book in our house. Mr A reads this daily (at least three times) And now has it memorized so he can recite it at any given time. Very cute! Awesome book, beautifully illustrated. If it can capture his attention for more than 5 minutes it is a definite winner. We even do a little improv of our own. Love it. Thanks Renee!

  8. Jenny

    Where to start. Digby’s Moon Mission is fun, educational, and page turning. From the first reading, my boys were captivated by how Digby would solve his problem. My younger child ‘read’ what happened next by looking at the amazing pictures, while my older child found words he can recognise and attempted to sound out unknown words.
    There are so many benefits to this book that I needed to create my own Educational Review and Activities linked to Digby’s Moon Mission. Find them below

  10. Jemma
