Having a moon for a head at high school is a pretty tricky situation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Out of this World I'm not sure what to say or where to start with this review. I really liked this book, both the story and the art; however, I will admit I don't *get* it and am perplexed by its meaning. I don't really believe in over analyzing books; if you are not hit with deep profound meaning, philosophy, theology, etc. then don't look for it and just enjoy the entertainment. And that is what "Moonhead" was to me. Pure enjoyment. Joey Moonhead has an actual moon for a head, so does his mum and dad. Everyone else are normal human beings. Nobody makes an issue of this except that bullies tease him and grab his head to throw around and stuff. Joey gains some fame after competing in the school talent contest, gains self-confidence but also learns lessons about what happens when one forgets old friends on the way up, and the price paid to enter the "in crowd". I really felt for Joey and his female friend Sprocket. Even though I was completely baffled, the psychedelic transformations and accompanying artwork, when he played his music machine had me gleeful. I found the art totally impressive. Very sixties, Beatles, hallucinogenic. It's a difficult call on recommended age group but the story is about highschool and contains adult language, so certainly not for children even though the art does look cute. Very unique and whimsical.
