373M: Children’s book about a man in the moon

I’m looking for an illustrated children’s book, most likely published in the 90s although it could have been earlier. Definitely before 2000. There is a man who lives in the moon. He is illustrated as a man, not a face on the moon. There is a woman or girl he cares about who is below in a house. I think she comes outside to see him or communicate with him. I can’t recall if he has a ladder and can get to her or he can’t reach her. He maybe has a job to do taking care of the moon or lighting it up.

    Could it be Tomi Ungerer, Moon Man, from 1967? I don’t remember his having to turn on the moon but he did like watching Earth from the Moon and decided to visit.
