The Fisherman’s Daughter loved to dance in the Sunlight, and bathein the glow of the Moon, but when the moon would disappear for afew nights each month, she would worry about her father and howhe would find his way home from sea in the deep darkness. Whenthe sun finds her sobbing one night, he takes one of his rays andsmashes it onto the ground, creating the stars and giving the girl thetask of putting them into the dark night sky. This beautifully illustrated story gives us a new folk tale, and a newway to look up at the night sky.
