Description - Rabbit and the Moon by Douglas Wood

Rabbit has always dreamed of going to the moon, but try as he might, he can't jump high enough. Finally Crane offers to fly him there. Rabbit holds on tight to Crane's legs -- so tight that by the time they reach the moon Rabbit's paws are bloody and Crane's legs have stretched. When Rabbit pats Crane on the head in thanks, he stains Crane's feathers. To this day Crane still walks on long legs and wears a red headdress. And if you look carefully at the full moon, you can still see Rabbit there, riding across the night sky. This adaptation of a Native American folktale is told with a storyteller's flair and illustrated with watercolor paintings that are animated and true-to-nature at the same time.
