Night Monkeys

Written by: Dana Simson

First line: Night Monkeys are full of mischief.

Why you should read this book: Mischievous monkeys in charge of the sunset taunt the Dreamcat who juggles phases of the moon. When monkeys steal a crescent moon, Dreamcat steals it back, replacing it with crescent-shaped bananas. Sort of a psychedelic new age origin myth.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're looking for a book that explains how earth's shadow falls across our major satellite to produce the illusion of changing shape.
