A fun and relatable story about a little boy's fear of the unknown.

Moar has always loved autumn — playing outside with his friends, feeling the weather get colder — but there is one thing about autumn that really worries Moar. The moon. The days become shorter and the moon, with its creepy face and eerie smile, seems to be looking down on him before he can even get home from school! So, one day, Moar is determined to get home before the moon appears in the sky. But there are so many fun things to do on the way home, he may just run out of time! (From Inhabit Media)
