Bobby hitches a ride on a shooting star to bring Betty the most brilliant present in the whole universe...

But what can Betty do with the old moon?  Well... she could score goals with it, play tenpin bowls with it, go skating on it - or hang it from her favourite tree to have moonlight every day... 

This tall tale of a bear in love will delight children and adults alike.  Roger McGough's lyrical text is witty and fun, and Penny Dann's beautiful illustrations bring Betty and Bobby to life with warmth and sparkle.

Full of love and moonlight this is the perfect book to share with someone special.
