The Man in the Moon by William Joyce- ESSENTIAL

Joyce, William. The Man in the Moon, 56 pgs. Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2011.  $17.99.  

"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.”  

This is an incredible story that we read over and over!  The illustrations are breath taking.  The story is tender and engaging.  This is a must have for every home and classroom.
