Monica wants the moon to play with, so her Papa sets out to get it for her. It isn't easy to climb all the way up to the moon, but he finally succeeds — only to find that the moon is too big to carry home! The solution to the problem is a joyful surprise. In this delightful picture book, the story literally unfolds as pages open dramatically, extending outward and upward. It is a classic born of Eric Carle's love for his own children.
