Luna wants a new dress for the galaxy ball, but her mother says it's too hard to fit her changing figure-sometimes she is a New Moon, sometimes a Full Moon, and she's also different shapes in between.

Read to find out what happens in this engaging adaptation of Aesop's fable "The Moon and Her Mother."
