  • Papa, please get the moon for me.

  • Before Monica went to bed she looked out of her window and saw the moon.

  • The moon looked so near.

  • “I wish I could play with the moon,” thought Monica,

  • and reached for it.

  • But no matter how much she stretched, she could not touch the moon.

  • Papa,” said Monica to her father, “Please get the moon for me.”

  • Papa got a very long ladder.

  • He carried the very long ladder towards a very high mountain.

  • Then Papa put on the very long ladder on top of the very high mountain.

  • Up and up and up he climbed.

  • Finally, Papa got to the moon.

  • My daughter Monica would like to play with you, but you are much too bigsaid Papa

  • Every night I get a little smaller,” said the moon.

  • When I am just the right size you can take me with you.”

  • And, indeed, the moon got smaller...

  • and smaller...

  • and smaller.

  • When the moon was just the right size, Papa took it.

  • Down and down and down he climbed.

  • Here,” said Papa to Monica,

  • “I have the moon for you.”

  • Monica jumped and danced with the moon.

  • She hugged the moon and threw it into the air.

  • But the moon kept getting smaller... and smaller...and smaller.

  • And finally it disappeared altogether.

  • Then, one night, Monica saw a thin sliver of the moon reappear.

  • Each night the moon grew...

  • and grew...

  • and grew.

Papa, please get the moon for me.
