About this title

Synopsis:

A father will move heaven and earth to delight his daughter in this beloved tale from children’s book legend Eric Carle.

Monica wants to play with the moon, but she can’t quite seem to reach it. This story literally unfolds as the pages extend both outward and upward, and readers will empathize with Monica’s longing for the moon as well as be reassured by her father’s willingness to try to make her dream come true.
