I Want The Moon
the man raised his head as the space filled with light.
Moonbeams and memories flooded the room
as did his longing of owning the moon . . .
An over-indulged little boy grows into a very wealthy man who has everything he could possibly want on Earth. There is only one thing left that he MUST have - the moon he coveted as a child.
Plans are drawn, machines built and factories sent spluttering into the air. Giant towers grow up and up and up. Soon the moon is nearly within the man's grasp - but someone else wants it too. Their tug of war ends in disaster when the moon shatters into a thousand pieces. It is up to the children to come to the rescue . . .
A richly-detailed and heartwarming story with an important message about greed, happiness - and where NOT to look for it.
