In this gently satiric fable, Ungerer pokes fun at self-important adults who are afraid of anything or anyone unfamiliar, and reminds us that there is indeed no place like home. On its first publication in the US in 1967, at the height of the Space Race, Moon Man won the Book Week prize for books for children aged 4-8, and Maurice Sendak described it in Book Week as 'Easily one of the best picture books in recent years.' Since then, it has been translated into twelve languages. Moon Man will be the next classic Ungerer tale to be turned into a full-length feature film, following on the success of the award-winning The Three Robbers, which was show in French and German cinemas in 2007 and is due to be launched on DVD in the English-speaking world in 2009.

Bored and lonely in his shimmering home in space, the Moon Man watches the people on Earth dancing and having a good time. Just once, he thinks, he would like to join in on the fun. So one night, he holds onto a passing comet and crash lands on Earth. But the unexpected arrival of this mysterious visitor causes statesmen, scientists, and generals to panic, and the Moon Man is thrown into jail.

Alone in his cell, the Moon Man uses his special powers to slip through the hands of the law. It turns out that in accordance of the lunar phases, the Moon Man waxes and wanes. His left side starts to disappear - the moon is in its third quarter - and as the moon grows thinner and thinner, so does the Moon Man. Finally he is able to squeeze through the bars of his window and escape. Two weeks later, and once again fully formed, he enjoys his newfound freedom on Earth, and dances happily forhours at a party where all the other guests are wearing elaborate costumes and simply think he has dressed up as the Man in the Moon. But the police are on his trail, and a wild chase ensues.

Fleeing thrugh a forest, Moon Man finds a remote castle, where he is welcomed by an ancient, long-forgotten scientist named Doktor Bunsen van der Dunkel, who has been working on a space ship for centuries, hoping to eventually fly to the moon. Now too old and fat to fit into the completed rocket himself, Doktor van der Dunkel asks Moon Man to be the first passenger. Knowing that he would never be able to live on Earth in peace, Moon Man returns home to his planet, happy to stay there forever now that his curiosity has been sated. Back on Earth, Doktor van der Dunkel finally gets the recognition he deserves for his scientific breakthrough.
