Chaos and confusion in the forest! The moon has vanished from the sky! It's pitch-black, and Badger, Frog, Duck, and Ladybug stumble around in the dark. Where oh where could Moon be? They set off to search for the moon together with the other animals. Suddenly they see a bright light coming from inside Moonbeam Bear's house. They can barely believe their eyes. Moonbeam Bear and Moon sit peacefully at the table playing a game of checkers. The animals don't know what to do. Moon has to get back up in the sky right away ? but how can they get him back up there? And then, to make matters worse, now Moon has nodded off and he's soundasleep ...Not even a thunderclap can wake him up! They can't put Moon back up in the sky when he's sleeping, so the animals scamper off to find Sun Bird. After all, his cheery chirping wakes up all of them very morning - and it will certainly wake up Moon. But where is their little friend? Sun Bird has disappeared. Moonbeam Bear, Rabbit, and Lady Bug are determined to find Sun Bird, and they bravely set out to search for him...
