But how does the moon taste?
Bear builds a rocket to find out.
This book is entitled Mooncake. It's written by Frank Asch. I would personally say that this is kind of classic one. It's firstly published in 1987. Jadi, warna-warnanya tuh, ehem, gimana yah, klasik gitu. Pastel yang kuat tapi tetep menarik. This book is in English. So, I would say this is a great choice if you want to introduce English in a simple yet interesting way to your girl.
Buku ini bercerita tentang seekor beruang yang berteman dengan seeokor burung kecil. Suatu hari, mereka duduk bersama dan memandangi bulan. Tiba-tiba si burung kecil berkata bahwa ia lapar. Si beruang pun menimpalinya dengan berkata bahwa ia sendiri pun lapar. And, out of a sudden, the bear utters that he wants to take a bite out of the moon. The little bird feels suprised and asks the bear how if the moon tastes terrible. Wanting to prove the moon taste to the his friend, the little bird, the bear tries some ways to feel the taste of the moon.
Firstly, he makes an arrow and then shoots the moon. However, he fails because the moon is just too far away. The very next day, the bear tries another thing. Guess what?! Beruang membangun sebuah roket! Voila! Roketnya pun akhirnya siap meluncur. Beruang melakukan penghitungan mundur. Namun, sebelum ia sampai di angka 1, dia tertidur. Sangaaaaaat lama. Si beruang baru bangun di musim dingin dan banyak salju. He assumes that he's on the moon already! OH! Finally, he scoops up some snow, makes it like a mooncake, and eats it. And, guess what?! He mistakenly thinks that he's already eaten the moon. What a naive bear. After finishing his 'mooncake' he goes back to his rocket and begins the countdown again to get back to the earth. Lagi-lagi, beruang keburu tertidur sebelum sampai di angka 1. Ia tidur lama. Sangaaaaat lama. Si beruang baru bangun di musim panas di mana semua salju sudah hilang. Ia mengira bahwa ia sudah kembali ke bumi. Finally, he meets the little bird and happily says that he's tasted the moon in a mooncake.
Well, well, what can I say? Really, this one's good stuff. Menurut aku sih imajinasinya keren. Hihihihi. Biasanya cerita anak seputaran princess dicium pangeran dan hidup bahagia selamanya. This one's surely different. Happy reading :)
