An excerpt of the book -

姑姑看着月亮说:“圆圆的月亮上有桂花书,还有玉兔和嫦娥。”
“在哪里?在哪里?我怎么没看见呀?”
小威伸长脖子、睁大眼睛,盯着月亮看。
“哈哈, 那是传说,当然看不见啦!”
爷爷和奶奶笑着告诉小威。

Many parts of Chinese culture are based on myths and legends, and I find it important to distinguish between fact and fiction whenever reading with my kids! So I really appreciate this touch that the author added in, to bring us back to reality and help our kids understand that these mid-autumn tales are just stories.

We love the illustrations by 朱成梁, who also illustrated 《团圆》 and 《打灯笼》, both with 浓浓的中国风 and so beautiful.

Side note: The illustrations here make an excellent reference for kids who would like to draw mooncakes!
