Illustrator Hannah Wheeler takes the old notion of the story of the man on the moon, and decides to portray him as a giant who is always looking out for us.

Her graphic novel style of illustration require no words or dialogue, the images alone are enough to convey the entire tale of a lonely being on the moon who wants to befriend Earth. Furthermore, his attempts at making contact with Earth are in fact the causes of many historically significant events. For example, Stonehenge and the pyramids are carvings he flung over as gifts and Newton got hit in the head by a pebble the giant kicked over in frustration.

Wheeler tells the story of the man on the moon within historical contexts.
