The Man in the Moon is a book that inspired the movie "Guardians of Childhood". This book connects all the childhood icons like Santa, Tooth Fairy, Sandman, Easter Bunny.. This story is just the beginning however. William Joyce gives us the back story of the man in the moon as he is a very important character. This story is all about nightmares and dreams. In the end, The Moon Man organizes a group that's purpose is to make childhood better. I think this idea is very important to Joyce and he shows it in his work. I LOVE that in many of his books we see the man in the moon in his illustrations. Seeing that familiar, smiling face in his other books just added more feeling to the text. William Joyce is an amazing author and a marvelous illustrator and from what I've read his purpose too is to make childhood better with his many forms of art. ( )

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. ( )
