Tashi is worried about his friend, the Moon. He seems thinner than usual. Maybe the Moon's Amma-ley isn't giving him enough to eat? Tashi decides to help his friend. And what does the Moon have to say? Well, he just smiles his special smile--eyes closed and no teeth showing.

Set in the remote mountains of Ladakh in India, Milky Way is a sweet tale of friendship between a boy and the moon. The story highlights the importance of the moon in Tibetan Buddhism and showcases elements of Himalayan cultures, including their delectable cuisine.
