Narrated against the backdrop of a ruthless regime determined to beat its enemies in the race to the moon, MAGGOT MOON is the stunning new novel from award-winning author Sally Gardner.
When his best friend Hector is suddenly taken away, Standish Treadwell realises that it is up to him, his grandfather and a small band of rebels to confront and defeat the ever-present oppressive forces of the Motherland.
Utterly original and stunning, it is impossible not to be moved by MAGGOT MOON's powerful story and the unforgettable heroism of Standish.
“Dazzling, chilling, breathtaking. MAGGOT MOON is, quite simply, a perfect book.” Meg Rosoff, author of HOW I LIVE NOW

1959. In a world where "The Motherland" is established and in an apparent standoff with the "Land of Croca Cola's" it is left to two families to foil an attempt at a hoax moon-landing.
A gripping story, a tale that will never go in a straight line. Think you know what's gonna happen next? Think again.
This is not your standard Nazi novel, this is a work of art. It gives not ago much a scary, but more intriguing perspective on what may have happened if the Nazi empire was not crushed. It is a true perspective from a citizen, what the continuing holocaust would have seemed like.
From a boy of the "impure", battling to get the truth out.
