Editorial Reviews

Every night the man on the moon looks down on Earth’s people, dancing and making merry. The moon man decides he’d like to join them, and catches a comet headed for the world below. Sadly, the moon man is greeted as an invader, and chased by the people of Earth. On the run from the law, the moon man realizes there’s no place like home, and begins searching for a way back into orbit.

Tomi Ungerer’s classic caper will capture the imaginations of children aged four to eight, while offering parents a few laughs of their own. Beloved children’s voice artist Peter Hawkins lends the story a playful singsong swagger, his inquisitive, whodunit intrigue lingering above the atmospherics of a noir-esque clarinet soundtrack recalling classic 1960s crime mysteries.

Publisher's Summary

The man in the moon, bored with life from his drifting sphere, longs to join in the fun he sees people having on earth.
©1967 by Special Arrangement with Diogenes Verlag for Harper & Row; (P)1981 Weston Woods
