Summary

Mole thinks that the moon is the most beautiful thing he's ever seen and he wants it, so he tries to pull it down - to no avail. Then he notices the moon is in a puddle at his feet; he reaches down to pick it up, and breaks it. He's inconsolable until he sees that the moon is not broken at all.

Bringing Down The Moon Summary

Bringing Down The Moon by Jonathan Emmett

"Hot-diggerty! Whatever's that?" exclaims Mole as he burrows out of the ground one night and catches sight of the moon. He thinks it's the most beautiful thing he's ever seen and he wants it, so he sets about trying to pull it down - to no avail. When all of his efforts prove to be in vain, he suddenly notices the moon's in a puddle at his feet and reaches to pick it up...and breaks it. Poor Mole's inconsolable, until he is shown that the moon is not broken at all, but just as beautiful as ever, hanging in the sky like a bright silver coin. And it's not as near as it looks!
