Bringing Down the Moon is a simple story delightfully told about a naïe little mole who, upon burrowing out of the ground one evening, saw the moon for the very first time. He was so overcome by the moon's beauty that he decided then and there that he wanted it for himself. He tried all kinds of strategies in his efforts to acquire it, but he soon realised that the task was not easy and he would not heed the advice of his friends Rabbit, Hedgehog and Squirrel. When climbing a tree to try to get nearer to his beautiful moon, he fell, the moon passed behind a cloud, and mole thought he had broken it. However, don't worry: the story has a joyful ending and Mole is happy once again! This is an enchanting book: the illustrations are captivating--all the pages are night blue, making the whole book really come to life (three years and above). --Susan Naylor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

from other reviews I initially thought it might be too old, but I was wrong....and I wouldn't say she is advanced. the language is quite plain. some other books rhyme unusual or old fashioned words and she seems to enjoy the more practical and realistic book. her enthusiasm for this was lovely to see, immediately she was shouting mole and moon, and cried when I moved it off the bed for her nap. a wonderful hit and I love it too to boot!
I have given copies to several children, aged three to six, and they all love it.
The paperback is the same (large) size, but the colours are not quite so intense as the hardback.
Children aged 3-5 will love hearing about mole's adventures and Cabban's illustrations provide much to talk about. They will also love joining in with the repeated phrases. Children aged 5-7 will understand the impossibility of mole's quest. Teachers of foundation stages and Key Stage 1 will find much to talk about and engage their pupils with this beautifully illustrated story.
