Publisher's Summary

Long ago, there were many suns in the sky and the world was miserably hot. The people asked the best archer in the land to shoot down many of the suns, leaving one in the sky. The remaining sun was afraid of the archer and hid behind a mountain, leaving the world cold and dark. Soon the people wanted the sun to come back, but it would take curiousity to lure the sun out from hiding. This classic story from China tells why the sun comes up in the morning and goes down at night, as well as why a certain farm animal is there every morning to loudly greet the sun. Illustrated by Baird Hoffmire.


Audible Editor Reviews

Why is there only one sun shining in the sky? And why does a rooster's song accompany the sunrise? In the delightful, traditional Chinese story The Archer and the Sun, children will hear about the brave archer who shot the extra suns out of the sky, and the feisty rooster who temped the last, timid sun to show its face. Gifted storyteller and author Rob Cleveland appealingly and gently performs this story, throwing earnest enthusiasm into Rooster's “cocka-doodle-doo!” when the sun finally rises.
