Gazing at the mango tree, Anu asks her mama: "What if I ate up all those mangoes one by one, and I got so full of them that I turned into a mango tree?"

Capturing the spirit of every child's imagination and combined yearning for and fear of independence, Moon Mangoes explores the "What if" back and forth exchange between a child and parent, and captures that magical before-bedtime hour when anything is possible and love is constant.
