Once upon a time in the dark of the moon there was a little raccoon. He lived down in a big warm chestnut tree with his mother -- who was also a raccoon. This little raccoon wanted to see the night. He had seen the day. So he said to his mother, "I want to go out in the woods and see the night." But his mother said, "Wait. Wait til the moon is full." So he waited, deep in his warm little home under the chestnut tree.
