A Gift From The Moon

Created for the 2019 summer library theme, A Universe of Stories.

A Puppet show about Space, with a touch of Magic.

Screen+Shot+2019-03-20+at+11.00.19+PM.jpg

Since before people figured out how to read and write, they have looked up at the Moon and wondered.
And probably everyone you have ever met has a story about the Moon.
And a question or two.

How big is the Moon?

How far away is the Moon?

How old is the Moon…

     …And what does it want for its birthday?

A story of friendship and forgiveness 
all wrapped inside the bigger story 
of the Moon and Space itself.

Inspired by Frank Asch’s Happy Birthday, Moon.
