Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers, and sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees...

One spring evening the fairies gather in the woods. Two sleepy children join the parade and set off to a wonderful party under the stars.

Carolina Rabei's ethereal illustrations make this the perfect book for bedtime. This is a magical introduction to poety for young readers.
