  • Howard Pyle was a renowned author who made his mark in the 19th century with a number of books for young adults on such figures as Robin Hood and King Arthur. In 1889 his son Sellers died unexpectedly. In 1895 he wrote a children's fantasy called The Garden Behind the Moon. The book is about what awaits children beyond this mortal coil.Young simpleton David lives in a fishing village and spends his days caring for his infant sister and listening to the stories of a fellow simpleton, a cobbler na [...]


  • Originally published in 1895, The Garden Behind the Moon is, like The Water Babies and At the Back of the North Wind a Victorian children's story with a curiously death-oriented plot. The Garden Behind the Moon is a beautiful place inhabited by the souls of dead children, though the two main characters, a princess and a fisherman's son, are actually in a catatonic state while their minds visit the realm of the Moon Angel, a beautiful and frightening entity who may be the angel of death or perhap [...]


  • I got this book at the Delaware Art Museum, inspired by having seen the collections of illustrators. I had been only dimly aware that Howard Pyle wrote as well as illustrated books, so chose this out of curiosity. The title reminded me of some of the old fairy stories that my mother and her mother had read; indeed, this book was published at a time when my grandmother may indeed have read it as a child (1895). The story is a rather static narrative, easy to put down and forget what you've read s [...]


  • I’m sort of torn between giving this book a 2 or 3 star rating. The story itself is nothing really new; it read like a retelling of various Bible tales including the story of David and Goliath. Pyle’s story centers around a boy named David who finds a path to the moon. He meets the Moon-Angel who sends David on a quest to find the Wonder Box and the Know All Book and return them back to earth. I did like Pyle’s illustrations. The figures themselves are rather rustic, but the backgrounds ar [...]


  • I picked it up for the illustrations expecting a cute children's fairytale book about gardens on moon to read to my little cousin butat's not what it is. Howard Pyle wrote this after the death of his son and it shows. It's a blend of several fairytales and biblical themes and reminded me of George MacDonald a bit -- except MacDonald is better. This did have its moments, though. I think I also spotted some Tolkien inspiration -- I wonder if he based his idea of Olórë Mallë on this or if the si [...]


  • Excellent read aloud for kids. Closer to 4 stars. I realized as I read this that parts of this story were included in other fairy tales I read growing up. But I would say that this is the "original" since this author was very popular for kids well over a hundred yrs ago. Look forward to finding more by this author for my younger ones.


  • I recognized several different stories in this novella: Jack and the Beanstalk, Adam and Eve, Cinderella (with reversed roles),Pegasus, Pandora's Box. I found the first part of the book slow and maybe repetitious, but the second half picked up. It's meant to be a children's book, but I don't know if I'd read it to children.


  • Though the idea of the story includes fantasy and childhood innocence, the writing style is difficult to follow and adds a heaviness to the reading that I didn't enjoy. I especially loathed the ending of this book leaving me disappointed and wanting to write my own ending.


  • This was one of my favorite books while growing up. The last time I read it I was ten but I plan on re-reading within the next couple of weeks!


  • This is the only book I've ever read that was so horrible I had to quit reading it. I really do not like this book.




  • The story had classical elements such as different helpers along the way and the Pegasus of clasical mythology
