MiM, For Short

Meet the very first Guardian of Childhood.

The Man in the Moon, by William Joyce (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 1st ed., 2011), took the author/illustrator 20 years to create. It is the first in the author's Guardians of Childhood series. Its paintings are gloriously breathtaking in color, composition, and scope. The story will please early readers (preschoolers, we used to call them) with its dynamic language and exotic characters and landscapes. The book will be most appreciated, however, by grown-ups, whose childhoods MiM, the Man in the Moon, was guarding so long ago. It is a wonderful book to read aloud or to yourself.

In our book trailer, we have tried to match the majesty of the book's illustrations with similarly grand music, and, once again, the Library's own composer has delivered a masterpiece. It is a musical march to match MiM and his friends along their adventures.
