Fox wants to go to the moon. Mole does not - at least not until he hears about the huge worms waiting up there for him to eat. So the two of them set off on their adventure, with a little help from a rope of grass and their friends the birds. The bilingual text and bold art showcase Lois Ehlert at her captivating best.
LOIS EHLERT has created many picture books, including Leaf Man, Pie in the Sky, In My World, Growing Vegetable Soup, Planting a Rainbow, and the bestselling Waiting for Wings. She lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Collage Ilustrations With bright, simple illustrations, we read the Peruvian folktale. For English second language learners, this book is also written in Spanish so for a teacher, this could really put them at ease in a classroom. For our English students, they could be exposed to Spanish while reading about a folktale.
