Description

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

Monica wants to play with the moon, so her papa sets out to get it. It isn’t easy to climb to the moon, but he finally succeeds—only to find it’s too big to carry home. The way in which this problem is solved is a joyful surprise. This delightful story about a father’s love literally unfolds as pages open dramatically, extending both outward and upward.

Mónica quiere jugar con la luna, así que su papá se propone traérsela. No es fácil subir hasta la luna, pero por fin lo logra…solo para descubrir que es muy grande para llevársela a casa. El modo en el que el problema es resuelto es una alegre sorpresa. Esta encantadora historia acerca del amor de un padre se desdobla literalmente ante el lector, ya que las páginas se abren dramáticamente y se extienden hacia afuera y hacia arriba.
