Synopsis : Of course you know the Guardians of Childhood. You've known them since before you can remember: Santa, The Tooth Fairy, The Easter Bunny and the others. But ...where did they come from? How did they became beloved, and worthy of holidays? Embark on the first of seven very different journeys, starting with the Man in the Moon's, the very first of the Guardians. Join William Joyce on his latest adventure-to the Moon and discover the legends of The Guardian of Childhood.
Critique: This gorgeously strange picture book, the first in a projected series, traces the origins of the Man in the Moon, who, after losing his parents in a battle with the King of Nightmares, is raised by a retinue of giant glowworms and mice in tasseled sailor caps. Joyce's shimmering images are at once adorable and otherworldly: a lunar moth bears the sleeping baby hero through space; at dinnertime, starfish swarm the sky. --"The New Yorker" (12/5/12)
