The sun falls into the ocean. The world is plunged into darkness. There's only one thing to do! Listen to the kiddo with an idea.
- Murphy— From Saving the Sun (Staff Pick)
After an especially sweltering day, the ocean sparkles and twinkles so invitingly that instead of slipping beneath the horizon, the sun plunges into the ocean itself.
When the sun sinks and loses its fire, Luna and Poppa’s yearly vacation on Summer Island suddenly goes dark. Luna knows the sun needs their help—the sky looks all wrong, and it’s neither day nor night! But it’s a big job to do all on their own.
To bring back daylight, they must think of creative solutions, seeking help from the local dolphins, monkeys, birds, and more. With the power of teamwork and imagination, can they find a way to return the sun to its rightful place, and set it ablaze once more?
This imaginative tale will enchant readers as Luna, Poppa, and their new friends of the sea, beach, and air rise to the challenge of fixing the sky once more and—literally—save the day.
Emma Pearl was excited to continue Luna and Poppa’s adventures from Mending the Moon (Page Street Kids) and thought it only logical the pair would save the sun next. Emma has traveled to over fifty different countries, including many beautiful tropical islands like the one in this story. Her love of storytelling began at a young age, spurred on by her relationship with her great uncle, renowned children’s author Roald Dahl. She now lives in New Zealand with her family and their one-eyed cat, Penelope.
Sara Ugolotti is a freelance illustrator of many children’s books, including Mending the Moon (Page Street Kids). When she’s not working, she also enjoys photography, travel, and cooking. Sara lives in Reggio Emilia, Italy, with her partner and their French bulldog, Murphy.
"Pearl cleverly employs a combination of childhood logic [...] and mythical magic to give this story the lush feel of a folkloric tale perfectly suited for little ones."
—BCCB, starred review
"Poetic text is more than matched by glowing illustrations [...] A whimsical tale of imagination, human inventiveness, and interspecies cooperation."
