Ray is a curious armadillo, and what he is most curious about is the moon. Ray wonders how it can have so many shapes and why it sometimes disappears. He decides to find out the answers to his questions by asking his desert animal friends, from the prairie dog to the desert grouse, each of whom has his own fanciful idea. But it isn't until Ray meets a wise old owl that he learns exactly what the moon is--and discovers that sometimes the truth is the most unbelievable explanation ofall! This enchanting story is brought to life by stunning oil pastel illustrations. Also included is an afterword giving a brief explanation of the phases of the moon, as well as a note about the role that the moon has played in legends around the world.
