(Oscar Goes to the Moon: a whimsical story about reaching for your dreams)

Milwaukee, Wisconsin (June 6, 2022) - Ninewise Publishing introduces a new children's book from an Australian author and illustrator. Oscar Goes to the Moon is a whimsical story of perseverance and imagination with adorable illustration and subtly clever story text perfect for young children. The author, Helen Tanner, based the story on folklore and years of experience with children to create a story that inspires children and leaves them feeling empowered to make their dreams come true.


Helen Tanner is from Melbourne, Australia. Helen loves to support children finding their own way of expressing themselves through various media. Helen’s hobbies include meditation, swimming, and drawing. She currently lives in Sydney with her husband and two daughters.


"Over the moon for Oscar!!  New moms across the world will be asking for this book on their baby registries. I can even see a line of nursery designs and decorations with the Oscar Goes to the Moon theme. Adorable to the max!   A tale of  little rabbit living here on earth, that sets a goal to meet a rabbit that lives on the moon. The illustrations are raw and simple, and yet they evoke such love and powerful emotions." -  Kelly Baquerizo

"When we saw Helen's work, we loved the elegance of intertwining an important message for children with fun, engaging illustrations. The story manages to be whimsical and light, while also delivering a heavy dose of optimism to chase a dream. It really is magical."  said Ninewise cofounder, Amy Barnum.
