Description

A Taste Of The Moon was originally written in German, Wie Schmeckt Der Mond, and was translated into Chinese.
 
The Story
 
The animals had wanted to find out what the moon tasted like. One day, the tortoise decided to climb the tallest mountain, in an attempt to reach the moon. When he was up there, the moon was indeed closer, but still too far to reach. So the tortoise called the elephant, who climbed up on top of the tortoise to see whether they could touch it. Amused, the moon decided to move away a little, and the elephant could not reach it. So they started calling all the other animals, one by one. Eventually, they formed a tower with the tortoise at the base, followed by the elephant, the giraffe, the zebra, the lion, the fox, the monkey... Each time the moon saw another animal arrive, it moved away just a little bit more to stop them from reaching.

Finally, the mouse came along, and when the moon saw the mouse she thought to herself 'Such a small animal will never reach me'. And she stayed where she was. So the mouse climbed up the tower of animals and -at last!- managed to tear off a small piece of the moon. It then passed down a piece of the moon to each of the other animals
below. And what did it taste of? Read the book to find out..
 
This book is well written and suitable for reading to kids of young age. It has a repetitive and cumulative structure and parents can encourage the narration of the various animals in the book, such as giraffe, elephant, etc, as they appear.

Description in Chinese

内容简介

月亮,是什么味道呢?是甜的还是咸的?真想尝一小口啊!夜里,动物们望着月亮,总是这么想。可是呢,不管怎么伸长了脖子,伸长了手,伸长了腿,也够不着月亮。


  有一天,一只小海龟决心去摸一摸月亮。爬到山顶,月亮近多了。可是,小海龟还是够不着。海龟叫来了大象。“大象,你到我背上来,说不定我们够得到呢!”月亮想:“这是在和我玩游戏吧!”大象的鼻子往上一伸,月亮轻轻地往上一跳。


  大象够不着,它叫来了长颈鹿。然后长颈鹿叫来了斑马,斑马叫来了狮子,狮子叫来了狐狸,狐狸叫来了猴子,猴子叫来了老鼠。


  月亮看着老鼠,心想:“这么个小不点儿,肯定捉不到我的。”月亮已经玩累了,这回它没有动。想不到,“咔嚓!” 老鼠咬下一片月亮。它给动物们都分了一口月亮,大家都觉得,这是它们吃过的最好吃的东西。


  一条小鱼看着这一切,怎么也闹不明白:“为什么它们要那么费力,到高高的天上去摘月亮?这不是还有一个嘛,喏,就在水里,在我旁边呀。”
