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.

Author Bio
William Joyce
William Joyce's first full-length picture book, BILLY'S BOOGER, written while he was in elementary school, got him sent to the principal's office. Since that time he has created a number of well-loved and less "gross" works such as DINOSUAR BOB(1988) and BENTLY AND EGG (1992). He attended Southern Methodist University and worked as painter before becoming the author and illustrator of picture books. Joyce says that he is influenced by cartoons, television, and movies--his favorite movie character, King Kong, has a cameo appearance in nearly every one of his books.
