In this timeless bedtime story, the moon’s luminous, watchful presence inspires wishes of hope and love, with dreamy watercolour illustrations by acclaimed illustrator Milan Pavlovic.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be the moon?
“I wish I were the moon,” says the speaker in this timeless bedtime story, “so that I could shine on you.” The moon shines to guide a journey home, glistens beautifully on icy snow, and wishes peace and safety for travelers, friends and troubled hearts.
Milan Pavlovic’s dreamy watercolor illustrations complement this sweet story from Patricia and Guy Storms. Children and the adults who read to them will be delighted as moon wishes reach over icebergs, into towns, through forests and under the sea.
