9780060262358: Moon Man

In this classic story by one of the world's best-loved and acclaimed storytellers for children, the man in the moon looks down on the happy, dancing people on Earth every night, wishing he could join them. He hitches a ride on a passing comet, but quickly finds himself thrown into jail by people who see him as an invader, rather than a friendly visitor. The Moon Man, however, has a most unusual – but perfectly logical – means of escape, and sets out to make his way back home. This is a beautifully illustrated, quirky and gently satiric fable that children and adults are sure to find delightful.

Review:

‘Maurice Sendak, a friend of Ungerer’s, thought him the most original children’s book writer of his time.’
Sunday Telegraph

‘so strong and graphically interesting … It’s art – illustration at the highest level.’
The Times

‘[a] style marked by great originality of illustrative technique, and a use of language that refused to patronise his young readers’
Dazed & Confused

‘Watch the children, the subversive is back’
New York Times

‘ His ability to capture the absurd […] and inject […] subtle humour make this book a timeless classic’
Outside In

‘The new editions look fresh and inviting, with creamy backdrop pages, crisp colors, and almost tangible textures.’
School Library Journal

‘Ungerer’s artwork is distinguished by bright colors and his own distinctive style, and his stories are a beguiling mix of humour, wisdom and worthwhile messages’
Buffalo News
