A puppy can't sleep and listens out, wide-awake and anxious in his bedroom, to the sounds of his brother and his parents getting ready for bed. Meanwhile, the full moon, gentle and kind, watches over him, offering comfort, love and, finally, a goodnight kiss. "When morning comes, the moon will go to bed. Now you may stay awake and keep her safe ... you'll keep her safe." This book is simply magical. Our copy is covered in kisses as my little girl finds the moon's big, round, beautiful yellow face irresistible.
