Sing to the Moon

by Nansubuga Nagadya Isdahl

Sing to the Moon

Jjajja tells me, “Sing to the Moon,” and perhaps my wishes will come true soon.

For one little Ugandan boy, no wish is too big. First he dreams of reaching the stars and then of riding a supernova straight to Mars. But on a rainy day at his grandfather’s house, he is brought down to earth with a bump. Do adventures only happen in galaxies far away, or can he find magic a little closer to home?

A touching story steeped in Ugandan culture of a grandfather’s love for his grandson and the quiet pleasures of a rainy day.
