The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Publisher: Andersen Press
Mayfly’s first day on earth is also her last. And she is determined to enjoy every minute. From early dawn light to the rising of the moon, Mayfly delights in everything around her. She tastes the honey of budding flowers, sees chicks hatch and lambs tottering about. She feels summer rain, sees a glorious rainbow and basks in the sun. Trees scatter their confetti leaves for her wedding, while bells ring out in celebration. In the evening Mayfly lays her eggs and lies down to sleep forever on a lily pad. It has been the best of days.
Sunny, pastoral illustrations accompany this poignant, uplifting story about making the most of every moment and rejoicing in the present.
