What a fabulous, beautifully illustrated book that tells a unique story about the man in the moon This is one of those books that reads like a movie you d want to take your kids to see I m not sure what I was drawn towards, the absolutely amazing artwork or the fantastic story.Have you ever wondered who or what lived on the moon William Joyce s debut The Man in The Moon not only introduces to the jolly man who lives there nope I m not talking Santa Claus , he ll also tell you how he got there We re huge fans of the moon in our home, and I can say for certainty that next time we re looking up at the moon, we ll all be looking for the wonderful man in the moon, the guardian of children.This book is a beautiful, creative story that will allow your children s imaginations to sore I m definitely not a kid, and this book appealed to my inner child I thoroughly enjoyed being whisked away in this whimsical story This is a book I d highly recommend adding to your personal library collection or school libraries. I saw William Joyce speak at the ALA Conference in June 2011 He talked quite a bit about the development of this book, it is the first book he s written in about fifteen years He spoke in depth about how he had cultivated the mythology of Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and others, for his children and how it made this book quite personal Added to this was the fact that Mr Joyce was developing the premise for this book during illness of his daughter and her subsequent death, gives this book an added depth and beauty Though let s be honest if you didn t know this heartbreaking back story, you would still find the book visually stunning It is beautiful Detailed, saturated colors, and just lovely.There are at least two books in the series coming out in the next year covering Nicholas St North and E Aster Bunny And as this book did a lot of exposition I m excited to see storytelling Get this book, and every subsequent book Don t ask questions, just go forth and purchase. Beautiful illustrations and a story that almost made me cry at parts A very enjoyable, innocent, wonderful story. Muuuito lindo O livro conta a hist ria do homem da Lua de forma pouco detalhada, Esperava um pouco mais de introdu o ao personagem Mas um livro pequeno, totalmente ilustrado e que se direciona a um p blico bem mais jovem que os livros guardi es da inf ncias Mas adorei apreciar as ilustra es do William Joyce que s o simplesmente maravilhosas Esse homem demais. did I add this because I m obsessed with the animated movie of course William Joyce is one of my favorite children s authors of all time His stories are creative and whimsical and full of magic and beautiful illustrations Man in the Moon, or MiM, is a childhood guardian This is the myth of MiM from his childhood to adulthood It is the tale of how the moon came into being as the guardian of children s dreams It explains how the moon glows brightly It points out the distant face on the moon s surface and how it was formed.The gorgeous artwork is intricate Reading this book aloud to students would be a good introduction to myths and to imagination This debut is beautifully written and illustrated It would be a splendid edition to any personal library.
