The moon gets sleepy at night, but everywhere it goes, the others feel that it’s too bright. Where can it find a place to sleep?
Every night, the moon lights up the sky. It guides life on earth into a deep sleep. Yawn! When the moon itself starts to get sleepy, it asks “May I sleep here too?” But its light is too bright, and the moon keeps getting rejected. What can the sleepy moon do? Can it find a place for a good night’s sleep?
The Moon Wants to Sleep is a bedtime story about what the guardian of night gets up to between sunset and sunrise. Using only a pencil, Lin Ssu-Chen’s black and white illustrations capture the gentle light of the moon in contrast with the darkness of the night. Join the moon on its sleepy nighttime journey to try and find the perfect spot for sweet dreams.
