Following the success of Poonam Mistry's "How the Stars came to be" comes this new story inspired by Vietnamese folk tales, beautifully brought to life in this truly unique picture book from Saigon-based illustrator Wiliam Luong.

When Jade Emperor drops two gems from heaven, he sends his daughter and son to retrieve them. On their journey, the children witness the darkness and struggle around them. After petitioning their father to bring light into the world, each gem is transformed into the sun and the moon, where to this day sister and brother hold them up in our sky.
