Little Owl and Little Rabbit live in the same oak tree, but they've never met. While Little Rabbit hops through the forest by day, Little Owl soars over it by night.

When they discover they are neighbours, the pair are desperate to meet. But how can they, when Little Owl is waking up just as Little Rabbit is going to sleep?

Then one night, a big, bright full moon appears. Will Little Owl and Little Rabbit finally get to play together?
