Is the moon really full of cheese? What color is the moon? Well, the moon isn't blue. A young boy is looking out of his window at the moon so far up in the sky. He makes a wish for his friend to get better from her illness. An imaginary spirit, Mr Moon, enters his room and turns his ordinary night into something truly spectacular.

"Once Upon A Blue Moon" is a book all set in blue hues. The pictures add to the delight in this story about a boy and his wish. This book teaches about love, friendship, hopes, dreams and wishes. This story could easily be new night-time tradition. Children will be entertained but also learn some valuable lessons along the way.

Sometimes we just like to wish for fun. But be careful what you wish for as it might just come true.
