What happens when the moon goes missing? Find out in this poetic picture book from a Newbery Honoree and a two-time Caldecott Medalist.

The moon is full and bright in the sky. So full, and so bright, that Bear can’t sleep! So he steals the moon from the sky and hides it away. But the other animals miss the beautiful, glowing moon…and they set out to get it back in this tender story with luminous watercolor illustrations from a two-time Caldecott Medalist.

Awarded the Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished picture book of 1971 "One fine day a fox traveled through the great forest. When he reached the other side he was very thirsty." The jaunty red fox stole milk from an old farm woman, lost his tail under the annoyed woman's knife, and spent the day bargaining to get it back. This humorous retelling of a favorite Armenian folktale is a story small children will follow and "read along" with ease.
