A gorgeous audiobook that tells a whimsical origin story of the phases of the moon, from award-winning, best-selling author-illustrator Grace Lin

Pat, pat, pat....

Little Star's soft feet tiptoed to the Big Mooncake.

Little Star loves the delicious Mooncake that she bakes with her mama. But she's not supposed to eat any yet! What happens when she can't resist a nibble?

In this audiobook that shines as bright as the stars in the sky, Newbery Honor author Grace Lin creates a heartwarming original story that explains phases of the moon.
