Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner
50% Friendship, 20% Dangerous, 20% Rebellion, 10% Conspiracy
A starkly original and heartbreaking tale of friendship and rebellion
“Dazzling, chilling, breathtaking. A perfect book” Meg Rosoff
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, illustrated by renowned artist Julian Crouch.
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.
Sally Gardner said: “Maggot Moon is the book I’ve always wanted to write and Standish has been waiting to be written for years.” She has dedicated the book “For you the dreamers, Overlooked at school, Never won prizes, You who will own tomorrow.”

Sally Gardner grew up amongst the drama of London’s law courts, as both her parents were lawyers. Having been branded ‘unteachable’ by some and sent to various schools, Sally was eventually diagnosed at the age of twelve as being severely dyslexic. Sally is now an avid spokesperson for dyslexia; she sees it a gift, not a disability, and is passionately trying to change how dyslexics are perceived by society. Fromt he press release.
