The Sleepless Little Vampire by Richard Egielski
" A cute enough Halloween or bedtime story, made unique by the fact that the reason our vampire is awake is not because of all the noisy night creatures and monsters, but because vampires sleep in the day. Probably funniest on its first reading, but... " Read more of this review »

James Thurber
“Have you brought the moon to me?" she asked. "Not yet," said the Court Jester, "but I will get it for you right away. How big do you think it is?" "It is just a little smaller than my thumbnail," she said, "for when I hold my thumbnail up at the moon, it just covers it." "And how far away is it? asked the Court Jester. "It is not as high as the big tree outside my window," said the Princess, "for sometimes it gets caught in the top branches." It will be very easy to get the moon for you," said the Court Jester. "I will climb the tree tonight when it gets caught in the top branches and bring it to you." The he thought of something else. "What is the moon make of, Princess?" he asked. "Oh," she said, "it's made of gold, of course, silly.”
