Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is the recently discovered, true origin of the first Guardian of Childhood—The Man in the Moon. Did you know that MiM (as he’s called) wasn’t always in the moon? He was once a little boy who never had a care, never had a nightmare, and sailed through the cosmos with his loving parents in the Moonclipper, the most beautiful ship of the Golden Age.

But when Pitch, the King of Nightmares, learns that MiM has never had a bad dream, he vows to capture the lad. His goal? To turn young MiM into a prince of nightmares. Epic battles and an adventure that spans the ages follow and MiM grows brighter and brighter, until he transforms the moon into a giant night-light to all the children of Earth—a beacon of calm on the darkest night.

Synopsis:

SIGNED LIMITED EDITION

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.
