How the Sun Got to Coco's House

Publisher: Walker Books

The sun rises above an icy landscape.Skidding across a sea, it shines briefly in a whale's eye. It heads up a beach and over frozen forests. It greets a small boy in a plane.

It waits at the bedroom window of an old lady, wakes wildlife in the countryside and catches Kosha on his way to market.

Sun meets rain above a desert and makes a rainbow, then leaps whole countries as it chases the night.

Eventually it barges in through Coco's window. It shines on her family as they eat breakfast and joins Coco and her friends as they build snowmen in the garden. A gentle, enchanting reminder that the world belongs to all of us.
