Publisher's Summary

David, a lonely young boy, learns the secret of walking over the glimmering sea path to the happy garden behind the moon. As David grows to manhood, he follows the Moon Angel's urging and starts on a hero's journey to bring lost treasure home to earth. And, therein lies a tale. But David has learned, while away behind the moon, how to love and be loved and how to be of service to those he comes into contact with and is very anxious to live out what he learned.

Howard Pyle was born on March 5, 1853 in Wilmington, Delaware. From the time he was a very small boy he loved pictures, especially the pictures in storybooks. Among his favorites were Grimm’s German Fairy Tales and Arabian Nights. At the age of twenty-one, Pyle began to contribute illustrations and fables to St. Nicholas magazine and later went on to write and illustrate books for children. His first was The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood in 1883. Many more books followed, including Pepper and Salt; or, Seasoning for Young Folk, Otto of the Silver Hand, Howard Pyle’s Book of Pirates, and The Story of King Arthur and His Knights.
