Bringing Down the Moon by Jonathan Emmett
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Hot-diggerty! Whatever's that?" exclaims Mole as he burrows out of the ground one night and catches sight of the moon. He thinks it's the most beautiful thing he's ever seen and he wants it, so he sets about trying to pull it down - to no avail. When all of his efforts prove to be in vain, he suddenly notices the moon's in a puddle at his feet and reaches to pick it up...and breaks it. Poor Mole's inconsolable, until he is shown that the moon is not broken at all, but just as beautiful as ever, hanging in the sky like a bright silver coin. And it's not as near as it looks!
