In this delightful rendering of a whimsical Asian fable about looking beyond appearances, award-winning author, Demi, retells the story of monkey mountain, an idyllic land where the monkeys frolic and play under the light of the full moon. One evening, a monkey notices the moon at the bottom of the well. “Help! Help! The moon has fallen into the well!” he cries. The other monkeys also see the moon and decide that they must rescue it by forming a chain down into the well. But when the bottom monkey tries to scoop the moon out of the water, it breaks into many pieces! Find out how the monkeys eventually rescue the moon in this timeless fable, which teaches us that things are seldom what they seem.
