About The Book

Monica wants the moon to play with, so her Papa sets out to get it. It isn't easy to climb to the moon, but he finally succeeds -- only to find the moon is too big to carry home. Children will love the joyful way in which this problem is solved.
Now available as a Classic Board Book edition, this delightful story literally unfolds as pages open dramatically, extending both outward and upward.
