One night Little Moon said to her mother, “Mother, please make me a beautiful gown like the one you are wearing.” Mother Fairy replied, “My child, there are no gowns which will fit you.” Little Moon was upset. She wanted to look as beautiful as her mother. “But, Mother, you are a fairy and you can create anything,” implored Little Moon. “Can’t you make me a gown?”
“Sure I could,” said Mother Fairy, “but what do I do with a child who is at one time a New Moon, at another a Full Moon and at other times not there at all!” Little Moon started crying, so Mother Fairy explained to her, “Oh, but you are the prettiest thing in the sky and a gown will only hide your beauty.” Little Moon beamed happily.
