ittle Mouse loves to gaze at the moon each night. In fact, she says, '
The moon is very beautiful. I would love to have my very own piece of the moon.
hen, lo and behold, the mouse finds a banana. '
My wish has come true,
' she cries, thinking the banana fell from the sky and is part of the moon.
looks so inviting and delicious, the little mouse nibbles on some of it. It is so good she eats a whole lot! '
Oh, no! Now the moon won't be round anymore,
' says the mouse with a look of chagrin on her pointy face.
t will be up to the mouse's friends to convince her she hasn't altered the moon and that it was really just a banana she ate.
his is the kind of silly story young children love and Petr Horacek's illustrations make it all the better. You'll love this moon-struck mouse with a big appetite!
