Moon Child In a small building in a large city far, far away, there once lived a very small and elderly man named Sid Blancay. Page 1


p. 5

No one cared to know much about Sid, for he was not very important. Page 2


p. 6

He did not own a fancy car, a big house, or even a boat. The only things he had were cats, clay pots, wrinkles, and a very big green furry coat. Page 3


p. 7

    It was said he had no family, little money, and was too old to have friends.     Page 4


p. 8

Yet somehow simple Sid was always at peace, for he hummed and whistled and smiled much like an elf. Page 5


p. 9

And he lived over the little shop where he made pottery for customers and himself. He claimed he sold the best pots of the best clay he had.

And he took long walks in the evening, he said, “To keep himself glad.” Page 7


p. 11

One clear night while he was out, two robbers, Sy and Mac, came to his store. “We’ll get what he has, for we want it more.” They searched for jewels and riches, of which he had none, they were quite bummed, “What shall be done?” Just then Sid returned, catching the two at foul play… “Holy cow, Sy, we’ve been caught! This is the day!” Page 8


p. 12

They grabbed him and pushed him and threw him to the floor. “Give us all you have and a little bit more!” Old Sid thought to himself, “To have to steal from one so materially poor, surely these two thugs must need my things much more…” So he helped them to take all that he had, all his cats, his coat, his pots, and a little change which he had.


p. 13

Then as if this was not enough, he gave them the clothes right off his back! “Great day, let’s get out of here, this guy’s crazy, Mac!” So the two robbers did flee, leaving Sidon naked in his barren shop be. Page 10


p. 14

As the two glided back into the gutters from which they came, simple Sid looked out into the clear night sky and he did exclaim, “What a shame I could not give them the beautiful moon to take too. What a shame I could not give them the beautiful moon.” Page 11
