First, like all of William Joyce's books the illustrations were magnificent. I liked them in this book in particular because they all looked very old fashioned yet futuristic at the same time. I once read that the sign of a very good book is when you can't tell what time period it is in or that the storyline could be placed in any century and it would fit. I believe the same goes for illustrations and William Joyce's illustrations definitely meet that criterion. His illustrations are so finely drawn and detailed that they look like paintings.

The Leaf Men : And the Brave Good Bugs

The brave good bugs march off to save the garden. First, they must fight the evil Spider Queen. Here is ancient elfin magic, epic adventure, and a bugle salute to the power of memory, loyalty and love as resounding as Robin Hood's call to his Merry Men! William Joyce's previous children's books, especially Dinosaur Bob and A Day With Wilbur Robinson , have delighted kid-kids and grown-up-kids alike with their strange, stylish illustrations and their slightly warped sensibility. In his latest book, The Leaf Men , things get even stranger, as the reader is plunged into the teeming mysterious world of an old woman's garden. When the old lady falls ill, and her garden falls into disorder, the mythical Leaf Men must be called upon to vanquish the evil Spider Queen and return things to order.

About This Item

A few weeks ago I saw a feature on William Joyce and decided to buy some of his books for my young nieces and nephews. The first one that arrived was The Leaf Men , which I had to order used in hardcover, as it is older. It is written for a young child and is a simple story about the brave bugs who climb to the top of a tree to summon the leaf men in an attempt to save a dying garden and an old woman. One of the things that attracted me to the book was the huge man in the moon on the cover, which was one of my favorite childhood images. This is a lovely book.
