Bedtime Story Stars Violin-Playing Cat Who Travels the World on Moonbeams; Anne E. Moses Releases New Children’s Book


Dog Ear Publishing releases “Gatos Musikos – A Secret Told by the Moon” by Anne E. Moses.

Author and illustrator Anne E. Moses presents the remarkable tale about a wondrous cat who plays for sleeping creatures the world over in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

The Moon has a secret: His best friend is a magical cat who plays the violin and dances for all sleeping creatures, traveling on moonbeams around the world. This charming new children’s book shares all the places Gatos Musikos visits and the wonders he sees. No creatures are too big or too small, too urban or too remote for Gatos to play his little violin and dance his twirling dance for them as they dream.

 “Gatos Musikos – A Secret Told by the Moon” weaves a wonderful tale that showcases animals and cultures from around the world. When the Moon is young and dinosaurs still refuse to go sleep despite all his efforts to soothe them, a very tired baby brontosaurus finally drifts off. The Moon watches in amazement as a marvelous cat appears and begins playing his little violin and dancing a twirling dance, easing the baby dinosaur into his dreams. The Moon is so delighted he offers his moonbeams to the cat so he can play and dance for all of Earth’s sleeping creatures. Now Gatos entertains animals from a tiny spider in its web to great Indian elephants and everything in between. He even performs a Scottish sword dance on the banks of Loch Ness as a sleeping Nessie drifts nearby.

After a busy night of traveling on moonbeams, and as dawn breaks softly over the world, Gatos has one last song to play before placing his little violin back into its magical case – this one for his very best friend, the Moon. Children everywhere are invited to believe in moonbeams, secure in the knowledge that they will never be forgotten by this remarkable cat, for Gatos Musikos will play his music and dance his twirling dance for them in their dreams. Enchanting illustrations by the author bring this imaginative bedtime story to life.
