Razeena Omar Gutta

In this gorgeous picture book about anticipation, celebration and tradition, a young girl called Maymoona – self-proclaimed future astronaut – cleverly finds a way to be the first to see the crescent moon in the sky, and to announce that Eid has begun.

Eid-al-Fitr is a joyous time of year for Muslims. It marks the end to Ramadan, a holy month of fasting, praying and deep spirituality – so the build-up to Eid is exciting and exuberant.

Food, gifts and decorations take centre stage, but sighting the crescent moon is the first sign that Eid can begin.

Because when Eid falls is based on the lunar calendar, there is always a chance that it may come one day early (and who wouldn’t want to fast one day less?), there is, naturally, a very strong desire to see the crescent moon!
