Creator: Rena Dunsworth
Age rating: Everyone
An eight year old clairvoyant girl leaves home with her ghost friend Debbie to save the buried moon.
Synopsis: This is a story about a young girl who is visited by the moon, who is in trouble, because she has been trapped by an evil witch while searching for her long lost child, the Moon Daughter. Sal decides to help her, but makes the mistake of showing her mom the moon rock that the moon has given her to use to find her. So she must steal the rock back with the help of her ghost friend Debbie. Together they leave in the middle of the night to find the buried moon, but they soon have her concerned parents hot on her trail, as she gets a bus driver to take her toward a town two hundred miles away. She meets Ed on the bus, an ex-con who reluctantly helps Sal and her invisible friend Debbie when he sees the moon rock brighten mysteriously. Eventually they get off the bus when the rock brightens to a maddening point.

Meanwhile in South Dakota an old Native American and his grandson figure out the moon is gone too, and set out to find her in grandfather's cherry 66 turquoise Impala. All parties meet up in the end to help the moon get freed and to help her find her daughter, Debbie, who changes in leaps and bounds when she comes into the witches marshes.
