Luminously illustrated by Mary GrandPre, 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 GrandPre 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.

A beautiful story, beautifully told. Be patient with the dark illustrations at the beginning - they make the light glow even more brightly at the end of the book.
