Young Tyler was gazing from the window. ‘What are you looking at?’ asked little Kate.
‘The man in the moon’
‘Don’t be silly’ said Kate, ‘The moon’s made of cheese’
Mummy walked up behind them. ‘The moon’s a balloon’ she said.
‘No it’s not’ giggled the kids.
‘Tyler thinks there’s a man in the moon’ chuckled Kate.
‘Kate thinks it’s made of cheese’ laughed Tyler.
‘I think it’s bedtime’ said Mummy. ‘Go!’
Through a crack in her curtains, Kate could just see the moon. She watched a little mouse nibbling away at its surface.
Tyler took one last look and waved. The man in the moon waved back.
