Mama, Let's make a moon."<br> <br> Award winning and nationally recognized author/illustrator Clay Rice has created a beautifully poetic tale about a humble mountain family who decide to make a moon. Created with Rice's renowned individual paper cut art, the fun begins when the brother and sister start collecting the "ingredients". The "Recipe For A Moon" contains everything from "a stream full of silver, a swan's starry shine, and 2 'possum's paws of dream dust from the imagination mine."
