Synopses & Reviews
In Moon Forest,
night is coming. The moon rises in the forest, and illuminates the coming and going of nocturnal creatures foraging in a temperate forest wilderness. The fox must find food for its young. The deer are stampeding! And meanwhile the hare, the owl, the badger and the bats are out and about. All through the night the fox is prowling, hunting. The rabbit manages to escape, but as dawn breaks the fox spots a flock of geese. Maybe this is his last chance to find a meal to take back to his cubs. . .
"The great white eye of the moon looks into the forest. What can it see?
A red fox running through a blue forest . . .
An owl gliding between shadows. A warm breeze ruffling fur; a hunter's nose, sniffing the sweet night air. Something stirring, a rat scuttling.
An owl fading into darkness clutching its prey."
