I have been looking forward to this book for a very long time and it turned out to be even better than I had hoped. Man in the Moon is the first book in a series by one of my very favorite illustrators of al time William Joyce. The series is called Guardians of Childhood. Check out this link for ore information on the series. I definitely think tis is Joyce's best book and he's done a lot of brilliant books. Every painting and drawing is gorgeous, and it's crammed with art. And the story is great. Just the right mix of charming, magical and kind of strange. But strange in a really wonderful way. The way I wish more things were strange. I can't recommend it enough.
And apparently it's going to be a film!
