The Man of the Moon Wins Aesop Prize Accolade

A 2022 Aesop Prize, in the category of Children’s Folklore, was awarded to The Man of the Moon and Other Stories from Greenland. It is written by Gunvor Bjerre and illustrated by Miki Jacobsen.

“This award is given to recognize exceptional books for children or young adults that are based on folklore, and [The Man of the Moon] is highly deserving of such recognition. The Man of the Moon delighted our reviewers with its mix of darkness and humor, necessary surely for the cultures that have thrived in such inhospitable landscapes. The watercolor illustrations with a color palette to match the icy blues, grays, and browns of Greenland drew us further into the world of the stories.”
