Join author Joseph Coelho and illustrator Fiona Lumbers as they share their latest Luna adventure, Luna Loves Art. Luna and her friend Finn go on a school trip to an art gallery where they discover some amazing art and find out that there are many different types of families. Can you spot the famous works of art by Van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol and many more?
Joseph Coelho is a performance poet and playwright who is probably best known from his appearances as CBeebie’s RhymeRocket. It didn’t occur to him that he could be a writer where he grew up in Roehampton but he never stopped writing and in 2015, Joe’s debut children’s collection, Werewolf Club Rules won the Children’s Poetry Prize. His follow up anthology Overheard in a Tower in a Tower Block was nominated for the Carnegie Medal in 2018, and his ‘story told in poems’ The Girl Who Became a Tree has been shortlisted for this year’s Carnegie Medal. Joe’s debut picture book with Fiona Lumbers, Luna Loves Library Day, was voted one of the UK”s favourite picture books in a survey for World Book Day.
Fiona has drawn on anything and everything from an early age and always insisted she would be an artist when she grew up. When she was a child, she borrowed her favourite picture book, Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans, from her village library so many times that they eventually replaced it and gave her her own copy! Fiona went on to study for an MA in painting at the Royal College of Art in London and nothing makes her happier than splashing watercolours and inks and conjuring up new characters, often influenced by the exploits of her two sons.
