Gazing at her beloved full moon at night, Little Mouse is unable to resist taking a nibble of a delicious banana that she believes is a piece of the moon that has fallen from the sky, rendering the moon no longer round.
"Little Mouse loves to look up at the moon every night. But one night, when a piece of the moon falls from the sky, she can't resist taking a little nibble. And another. Soon the moon is no longer round. What will happen to it now? Children will be eager to turn the pages and peek through the holes in an amusing tale of temptation featuring Petr Horácek's bold, vibrant illustrations. Little Mouse finds the moon so beautiful that she longs to have a piece of it all to herself. What happens when her wish comes true?"

Good story just a bit confusing for really young ones. It is still worth reading to them for the pop ups and lift flaps.

Wild little animals are the characters. Story about friendship. To understand a natural phenomenon: the appearance of the moon during night. Colorful and bright illustrations, awesome presentation of the book pages.

In a wonderful peep-through storybook, a silly mouse thinks she may have eaten up the moon as it disappears suddenly! This is a fun and interactive bedtime story that will have you wondering what ever happened to that Moon.
