Publisher Comments:

andlt;Iandgt;Papa, Please Get the Moon for Meandlt;/Iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; In this unique and delightful picture book, the story literally unfolds as pages open dramatically, extending both outward and upward. Monica wants the moon to play with, so her Papa sets out to get it for her. It isn't easy to climb all the way up to the moon, but he finally succeeds — only to find that the moon is too big to carry home! The way in which this problem is solved is a joyful surprise. andlt;BRandgt; Here is a multi-faceted story that appeals to children visually, verbally and emotionally, and which also contains a first lesson in natural history, depicting the eternal cycle of the waxing and waning of the moon. The simple text, just right for reading aloud or for the beginning reader expresses perfectly the purity of a father's love for his child. Small readers will empathize with Monica"s longing for the moon, and will be reassured by her father's willingness to try to make her wish come true. And, on a deeper level, they will recognize that Papa is not merely fulfilling Monica's whim, but is demonstrating to her that even a seemingly unreachable goal can actually be attained. andlt;Iandgt;Papa, Please Get the Moon for Meandlt;/Iandgt; is a book to be re-read many times, and to be treasured for its beauty and its positive message of love and inspiration.

Synopsis:

Monica's father fulfills her request for the moon by taking it down after it is small enough to carry, but it continues to change in size. Some pages fold out to display particularly large pictures.

About the Author

Eric Carle is known the world over for his beautiful picture books for very young children, with their simple and entertaining yet educationally sound stories and their distinctive collage illustrations. Born in Syracuse, New York, he moved with his parents to Germany, where he studied at the Academy of Applied Arts in Stuttgart. On returning to the United States, he worked for a time as a graphic designer for The New York Times, and then for a large advertising agency. His first children's book, 1,2,3 to the Zoo (1968) was an immediate success and his second, The Very Hungry Caterpillar (1969) brought him international acclaim and has established itself as a modern classic. He and his wife now live in northern Massachusetts.

A simpler version of Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me was written by Mr. Carle a number of years ago for his daughter Cirsten, who found it both heartening and inspiring. Now he has created new illustrations for his original story, and shares its message with a wider audience.
