The Moon Was at a Fiesta By Matthew Gollub. Illustrated by Leovigildo Martínez

An enchanting Mexican folk tale about why when we see the moon is out during the day, it is because of the moon's jealousy of the sun getting to go to all the parties, and has gone out to a fiesta. Colorfully illustrated by Oaxacan artist Leovigildo Martinez, who painted the three huge murals in Cafe Pasqual's dining room.

Un cuento encantador que explica por qúe a veces se ve la Luna de día, pues una noche hizo una fiesta ¡y se le olvidó meterse cuando salió el Sol!
