Review:

Amazon Best Books of the Month, September 2011: Twenty years in the making, William Joyce’s enchanting new picture book, The Man in the Moon, is worth the wait. In the first of his new Guardians of Childhood series, Joyce introduces the original guardian, MiM, the Man in the Moon. In glorious, colorful detail, readers are invited to imagine the Earth’s moon as a space age shipwreck, and the origin of bad dreams as the work of Pitch, King of the Nightmares. MiM’s fondest memories are of his devoted friend Nightlight, who sprinkled him with Dreamsand as an infant, and it is Nightlight who inspires MiM to become guardian to the hopes and dreams of all the children of Earth, but of course MiM will need help--from a toymaker, a fairy, a rabbit, and others like them. The Man in the Moon captures the wonder of childhood in a visual masterpiece that is to be treasured by readers of all ages. --Seira Wilson

Balloons lost on earth often floated up to the moon, carrying the hopes and dreams of the children who lost them.

“As a baby, the Man in the Moon had everything a child could need.”

The Guardians of Childhood


About the Author:

William Joyce has spent most of his life deciphering the long-lost and nearly destroyed records of the beginnings of the Man in the Moon, Santa Claus, and all the other Guardians of Childhood. The records were discovered on the Joyce family ranch outside of Abilene, Texas, in 1965. When not deciphering, he’s been busy creating picture books, including George Shrinks, Dinosaur Bob, and Santa Calls; winning three Emmy Awards for his Rolie Polie Olie animated series; and developing character concepts for Toy Story and A Bug’s Life. His films include Robots and Meet the Robinsons. He’s currently co-directing the DreamWorks Animation release of Rise of the Guardians (Fall 2012). He lives in Shreveport, Lousiana.
