What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

There was once a time when Sun and Moon lived on the earth–but that was before the rapturous Sun invited the never-ending Sea to visit in this playful version of an eastern Nigerian (Ibibio) creation myth. “This delightful story is outfitted in humor, a mock seriousness, and drama….A wondrous and alluring work.”–Kirkus Reviews.
