Description (from the publisher):

Up there in the sky.
Don't you see him?
No, not the moon.
The Man in the Moon.

He wasn't always a man.
Nor was he always on the moon.

He was once a child.
Like you.

Until a battle,
a shooting star,
and a lost balloon
sent him on a quest.

Meet the very first guardian of childhood.
MiM, the Man in the Moon.

What a gorgeous book. Thank you for the visual preview link. I am putting this on my Amazon Wish List now. Big mistake! Joyce has some other wonderful books listed there. Thank you so much for bringing it to my attention.
