Usha and the Stolen Sun

Author(s): Bree Galbraith; Josée Bisaillon (Illustrator)

3-5 yrs Picture Books (Hardback)

Usha lives in a town where the sun hasn't shone for as long as anyone can remember. Only her grandfather remembers its brilliance and tells Usha stories about the time before other people took the sun away, building a wall to keep it all to themselves. So Usha decides to do something and sets off in search of the sun.

When at last Usha reaches the wall, she tries to kick it down, climb it, yell her way through it--but the bricks don't budge. It's only after remembering her grandfather's words and hearing voices on the other side of the wall that cunning Usha changes her plan to make sure her voice is heard. She shares her grandfather's stories, even the ones that rightfully make her angry, and piques the curiosity of the people on the other side until they are inspired to remove the bricks, one by one to better hear what Usha has to say.

Because Usha didn't give up, they bring the wall down.

Inspired by the idea of civil discourse, this book offers a timely message of communication and compassion.
