What happened in the story of ‘Chapatti Moon’?

A copy of the children's storybook 'Chapatti Moon' is seen standing on a wooden cabinet, along with some figures of people and farm animals from the story.

This week Little Birds have been looking at the story of ‘Chapatti Moon’. It reminded us of The Runaway Pancake because the animals chase the Chapati.
