Finding Monkey Moon

author: Elizabeth Pulford
illustrator: Kate Wilkinson

Every night at half past seven, Michael and his stuffed monkey go hippity-hop, hippity-hop, up the stairs to bed. But one night when Michael calls out for Monkey Moon, he’s not in any of his favorite places. Dad thinks he must still be at the park, so he and Michael bundle up and head outside, into the dark street, to retrace their steps. As an owl gives a soft hoot, hoot, the two pass silent swings and sleeping ducks, brushing away leaves and looking behind trees, searching the sandbox and peering into the playhouse. Will Michael ever find his beloved toy? With a lyrical narrative and lovely soft art, Finding Monkey Moon transforms a child’s familiar experience into a nighttime adventure.

Where could Monkey Moon be? A parent and child share a tender moment as they search the park at night for a favorite toy.
