The Man in the Moon by William Joyce
Children, the Moon, Fairy Tales, Dreams, Nightmares
A fairy tale in which the King of Nightmares tries to kidnap the baby Man in the Moon and turn him evil. The Man in the Moon eventually becomes a guardian of the children of Earth, recruiting characters like Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy to help him. The artwork for the book is beautiful and the story is interesting. It’s a good addition to any picture book collection.
