An endearing tale of a girl who asks her father to bring home the moon for her to play with. The father succeeds, but Monica is in for a surprise as she attempts to keep the moon as a toy. 

Carle illustrates this book in the classic style of his other noted works, and fold-out spreads highlight inventive moments in the story.  This story contains a little more meat than some of Carle’s other works, making it a nice step forward for readers who have cut their teeth on his concept books.
