Moon, Moon, out too soon!

Moon, Moon, out too soon!
Genre: Picture book
The Sun is more than a little surprised to see The Moon out early. It turns out The Moon is unhappy with his ‘shift’ and apparently it’s The Sun that has all the fun; it’s only during the day that the exciting things happen and The Moon wants in on the action. But is that really the case? The Sun begs to differ and makes a compelling case for the night shift.
About the Book

SUN:
Moon, Moon you’re out too soon.
You’re not due out till well gone noon.

MOON:
But Sun, Sun, I want some fun
You have it all and I get none!
There’s NO excitement on my shift
When all the people do is drift…
…off to sleep and quietly lay,
Waiting ‘til you rise next day.

SUN:
But Moon, Moon, that’s just not true!
Think about the things you view;
Seeing fireworks fizz and spark,
Can only happen when it’s dark.

MOON:
But Sun, Sun, I have to creep,
As everyone is fast asleep.
You get to see the seaside swimmers…
…swimming as the ocean shimmers.
You see the picnics in the park;
They don’t have picnics in the dark!

SUN:
But Moon, Moon, you fast forget
All the creatures that you’ve met.
You hear the hungry wolves a- howl,
The hooting of the hunting owl.
You glimpse the glow of fireflies,
And lanterns lighting up the skies.
And are you sure that night is boring,
When you see a bonfire roaring?

MOON:
Sun, Sun, you’re so, so right,
I love the shift I work at night!
So Sun, Sun, I’ll see you soon,
For now I’m happy as the Moon.
