Author(s): Margaret Mahy
First, a heart-warming story - with lots of fun wordplay - about a grumpy farmer whose animals keep him awake at night singing and dancing by the light of the moon. Eventually he is won over by the moon and the animals and learns how to be happy. Classic Margaret Mahy!
Secondly, marvellous illustrations that will delight children and their parents - and that take the story to another level. David Elliot returns to picture book illustration with a gem of a book.
Added to this are beautiful book production values with die cuts and fold-out pages. A must-have gift for every child.
