When Stories Fell Like Shooting Stars
by Valiska Gregory & Stefano Vitale


Richly hued, oil-on-wood paintings are paired with lyrical but simple sentences in this book of two related stories--one about the cost of being greedy and the other about the rewards of generosity.

In the first story, a fox captures the setting sun to get power over his fellow animals and meets with tragic results. In the second story, bear sees the moon fall from the sky and he and his animal friends help put it back for everybody to enjoy.
