One of the most well-known picture books from Hans Christian Andersen prize winning, iconic author Tomi Ungerer.
The man in the moon watches the people on earth having fun and wishes he could join them. He hitches a ride on a passing comet, but quickly finds himself thrown into jail by people who see him as an invader, rather than a friendly visitor...
Featuring Ungerer's trademark paint and ink illustration style, this is a fable of displacement inspired by his own immigrant experiences.
