Man in the Moon

Man in the Moon by Dotti Enderle
Janine is prepared for a sticky, boring summer on her family’s land in the middle of nowhere. Far from town and with only her ailing brother Ricky for company, Janine spends half her time stuck inside with him, wishing that their mother would let them out to play. But when Mr. Lunas—a mysterious man who saved Janine’s father’s life in the war— arrives through the cornfields, strange things begin happening.

...A sense of quiet mystery appropriate to the lunar theme permeates the storytelling, leaving readers guessing as to Mr. Lunas's true identity. Guaranteed to inspire, this tender tale provides a fresh look at the proverbial man in the moon.
