A taste of the moon
Who’s never dreamed about grabbing a little chunk of the moon? The animals in this tale wanted to taste a small piece but, however hard they tried, they couldn’t reach.
So the tortoise had a great idea: “If you climb on my back, perhaps we can reach the moon”, she said to the elephant.
This is a story about wishes that at first may seem impossible to achieve, but which are made possible thanks to cooperation with others. All sorts of different animals join in to help: the tortoise (who supports the world, according to mythology), the elephant, the giraffe, the lion, the fox, the monkey, and finally the tiniest of them all…
This tale not only shares the qualities of well-known fables and legends, but also explores concepts such as solidarity, generosity and dreams, together with a touch of humour provided by the restless, smiling moon.
