The Man in the Moon by William Joyce

"A fabulous recapturing of an old, real fairytale world. Dark. Mysterious. Stunning!"~MAURICE SENDAK, Caldecott-winning creator of Where the Wild Things Are

And check out this fantastic cover:

The Man in the Moon by William Joyce

(September 6, 2011)

Up there in the sky.
Don't you see him?
No, not the moon.
The Man in the Moon.

He wasn't always a man.
Nor was he always on the moon.

He was once a child.
Like you.

Until a battle,
a shooting star,
and a lost balloon
sent him on a quest.

Meet the very first guardian of childhood.
MiM, the Man in the Moon.


Remember how much I enjoyed Leon and the Place Between by Angela McAllister? I’ve been searching for more dark and mysterious picture books, and I bet The Man in the Moon will be equally as thrilling.
