Synopsis

Where does the sunrise begin? Douglas Wood asks this question in the style that has made him an internationally bestselling author. He answers it by focusing on the world of one child, then moving to another child’s world farther away, and then yet still farther, to the ends of the Earth, before bringing the text back to its starting point. Stunning artwork provides a beautiful sweeping look at a world that is simple yet complex, one in which the sun always rises to reveal a new day, a new life, and a new chance.
