Description

From prolific and multi-award winning writer and illustrator Bob Graham comes an enchanting story about the sun, and how it makes its journey from the far side of the world to the home of one small girl. The sun rises up behind a snowy peak and casts its mellow dawn light for the wandering polar bears. It skims across the icy water, touching a fisherman's hat and catching for a moment in the eye of a whale. It beams through the trees of frozen forests and makes shadows in a little girl's footsteps before gliding over cities, darting down lanes and waiting patiently for an old lady to open her window. The sun races through the countryside, greeting snow cats and bears. High over a desert it meets the rain in a halo of colours...The sun leaps whole countries, chasing the night, before bursting at last in a fanfare of warm golden light through Coco's window!

Reviews

Reflective and beautiful, offering a lesson in both natural science and the diversity of our world. -- The Bookseller The Bookseller Graham's sun's eye view of the world is breathtakingly beautiful, his soft watercolours infusing quiet snowy scenes and a raucous family breakfast with equal warmth and humanity. This special book makes the world a smaller place. -- Andrea Reece Love Reading 4 Kids This beautifully presented book is illustrated in a humorous and deftly expressive pen-and-wash style, with a very light touch. Thoughtful and affectionate it offers a lesson in both natural science and the diversity of our world. Carousel Equally successful in bringing focus and intensity to vast landscapes and capturing the epitome of personal warmth felt in homes, between loved ones, Graham's soft, pastel-hued illustrations really bring the world alive, helping us to find wonder again in the everyday.
