6. I did not particularly like this book. The illustrations were fabulous but beyond that, the text of it seemed a bit too much in terms of vocabulary and story line when you think about who the general audience in which it was probably written for. The vocabulary of it is very rich, but most likely too rich for young readers/listeners to understand. The actual story was a bit out there, but I'm sure it might be an enjoyable read for some.
7. The curricular connection to this book could be with science and how to relate fantasy to facts about the moon. ( )

Excellent story and beautiful, large, full color illustrations. I love this author so far and the Guardians of Childhood series for children. Tells the story of the Nightmare King and how the man in the moon came to be. ( )
