Have you ever seen the moon on a clear blue day and wondered why?

"...Emotive watercolors...The well-told tale works on multiple levels...." --School Library Journal

There once was a time when the sun alone ruled the day, the moon graced the night, and little children were sent to bed before sunset. Then early one dawn, the moon heard sounds of children laughing, and she yearned to see them by daylight.

Certainly not! snapped the sun. The day is mine. The night is yours!

But the moon had a clever plan...

Carmen Agra Deedy and Jim LaMarche have brilliantly crafted an original pourquoi tale about finding one's place in the universe.
