Why the Sun and the Moon Live in the Sky: An African Folktale retold by Elphinstone Dayrell
Sun and his wife, the moon, lived on Earth and built a large house so that the water people could visit. But so many poured in that they were forced to move to the sky. An African folktale tells how the sun and water once lived on earth as friends, but because the sun failed to build his house large enough, he and his wife, the moon, were driven into the sky when the water came to visit them. First published in 1910 in the author's Folk stories from southern Nigeria, West Africa. A Caldecott Award winner with illustrations by Blair Lent.
