9780763615772: Bringing Down the Moon

The illustrator of DOWN IN THE WOODS AT SLEEPYTIME creates a cozy woodland world for this story about a mole on a mission.


Mole thinks the moon is the most beautiful thing he has ever seen, and he wants to have it for his own. But as his friends Rabbit, Hedgehog, and Squirrel remind him, some things are not as simple—or as close—as they look! Jonathan Emmett's lyrical text and Vanessa Cabban's woodland illustrations depict Mole's concerted efforts with gentle humor and charm.

About the Author:

Jonathan Emmett intended to end this story with Mole building a tower to the moon, until his three-year-old son, Max, pointed out that it would be far easier for Mole to climb a tree instead. (Max also thinks that Mole would have gotten the moon—if only he had chosen a taller tree.) BRINGING DOWN THE MOON is Jonathan Emmett's first book with Candlewick Press.


Vanessa Cabban has written and illustrated several books for children, including BERTIE AND SMALL AND THE BRAVE SEA JOURNEY and and BERTIE AND SMALL AND THE FAST BIKE RIDE. She is also the illustrator of DOWN IN THE WOODS AT SLEEPYTIME by Carole Lexa Schaefer. She says, "Mole's story touched me because he takes on an enormous task and triumphs in his own way. I wanted him to be a role model we can all love and relate to."
