It is mid-autumn festival time again and Mr Ming is busy in his shop baking the most delicious mooncakes you have ever tasted. Everyone wants to know the ingredients in Mr Ming's mooncakes, but he won't tell them, as the recipe is an old family secret. He won't even let anyone into his kitchen. That's because he has another secret, a secret even bigger than his secret mooncake recipe. Mr Ming has... a dragon!
Madame Moneybag doesn't know that though, and she is determined to steal Mr Ming's prize-winning mooncake recipe for herself. When she breaks into Mr Ming's shop, the dragon hears her and goes to investigate. When he sees the thief reading the recipe book, he becomes so angry that hot flames shot from his mouth! Then a fireball bounces out and shoots up into the sky, taking Madame Moneybag with it. It doesn't stop until it hits the moon. Boom!
The next evening, little Ah Beng comes to help his grandfather in the shop after school, and when they look up at the mid-autumn moon together, they discover something rather unusual indeed.
A charming, playful story about the beauty of the mid-autumn festival, based on the 3,000-year-old Chinese legend of the lady in the moon.
