The Boy from the Sun
Written and illustrated by Duncan Weller
The Boy from the Sun starts on an ordinary day. As three children sit on the sidewalk after school, wondering what to do to make the day special, a little boy with a yellow shining head floats down beside them. The children soon make friends with the strange new boy, and thus begins a magical journey that helps all the children see the world through new eyes. Duncan Weller combines evocative illustrations and poetic text — “For here, with everyone, / You are splinters of the sun” — in this enchanting story about taking the time to appreciate the natural world.
