Sun and Moon have always held their own places in the sky, but after a lifetime of darkness all Moon wants is to spend just one day as Sun. Sun agrees, but only if first Moon takes a careful look at his night, before making his final decision. Follow Moon as he travels through the dark discovering enchanting animals and scenes unique to the night-time, foxes hunting, children dreaming, lamplighters and fireflies. Will Moon still wish to trade Sun places in the sky? Or will he realise the beauty of what he already has?

A story of acceptance beautifully illustrated by local author, Lindsey Yankey.

The story reads as a modern-classic folktale about acceptance and gratitude. Beautifully illustrated by the author; the children and adults in the illustrations inclusively resemble diverse people. All ages will enjoy, but especially readers up to age 8.

A beautiful story beautifully illustrated. Sometimes it's good not to get what you want.

Moon wants to trade places with Sun as he is very curious about life during the day. Sun agrees to this as long as Moon takes a good look at the night time before making his final decision. Moon will take you on a wondrous journey through the night. There might be much more to the night time than Moon knows!
