Have you ever driven home late at night when there is a full moon? Have you ever “whispered words like big and beautiful” when you see “[t]he moon hung full and low and touch[ing] the tips of the trees?” Have you ever woken up the morning after such a drive and discovered that the moon had followed you home and was now in your backyard? What if that moon stayed in your backyard and the sun never rose? What if your town sleep walked through the day and that evening the tide pooled in your backyard? Imagine how you might feel and what you might do. Maybe even draw a picture or write a story about it. Then read this book, and then take a nap and dream of the moon and of what you read and what you wrote. When you wake up, you might find you have another story to tell.
