About this title
Luminously illustrated by Mary GrandPré, a timeless adventure from master storyteller Phyllis Root about the loss of the sun — and one girl's brave quest to find it
In a cozy cabin high in the mountains of the Far North, Lucia and her family live a snug and contented life. But one day the wind screams fiercely and the sun does not rise over the mountain. Someone has stolen the sun! "Perhaps it has lost its way," says Lucia, who despite her mother's pleas sets out to find it with only a bit of bread, a tinderbox, and her milk-white cat to keep her company. In dramatic pastels, Mary GrandPré illuminates troll-pocked frozen mountains and wraps Lucia's family in a blanket of warmth. Inspired by Nordic lore, Phyllis Root spins a golden yarn of courage, love, and the age-old longing for the return of light.
Phyllis Root has written more than thirty books for children, including WHAT BABY WANTS, OLIVER FINDS HIS WAY, KISS THE COW!, and BIG MOMMA MAKES THE WORLD, winner of a BOSTON GLOBE-HORN BOOK Award. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Mary GrandPré's ethereal pastel paintings grace the pages of several picture books, including SWEEP DREAMS by Nancy Willard and PLUM: POEMS by Tony Mitton, as well as the jackets of the Harry Potter series. She lives in Sarasota, Florida.
