Meet Me at the Moon Tree is a tender Australian story about searching for the impossible in the places where magic and science meet.

For Carina Sugden, nothing is more special than a moon tree – a tree grown from the seeds taken on the Apollo 14 mission into space. Her father taught her everything she knows about them. But he passed away before they found one together.
When Mum relocates the family to the Otway Ranges, Carina becomes determined to find a moon tree on her own. Like a scientist, she carefully searches the forest behind her new house. But after a mysterious encounter with a black cockatoo, Carina realises there’s magic in this forest. And if magic exists, anything is possible, like seeing her dad one last time…
