Illustration, Words

Sun loves everything about playing soccer: the cheers, the competition, the winning. But he feels as though something is missing. When he sees his younger brother spread out on the floor, creating a wondrous piece of art, he remembers how much he loves to make things. He goes to the beach to think, and it’s there that a magical encounter with a fox helps him reconnect with a long-forgotten source of happiness.

Released on June 11, 2019, by Clarion Books, Sun is written and illustrated by Alison Oliver. It is the sequel to Moon (April 2018, Clarion Books). You can get a copy at your local bookshop.

“Vibrantly colored mixed-media collage illustrations capture Sun’s adventure and invite readers to do some exploring of their own.”
– Booklist

“[An] immensely appealing fantasy…boldly colorful…. A visual treat for the young imagination.”
– Kirkus

“This companion to well-loved Moon is a fitting follow-up from author-illustrator Oliver and does not disappoint…A terrific storytime read-aloud or a one-on-one selection for a child struggling to find his or her bliss.”
