    Mary Grandpre's full page luminous pastel paintings are perfect companions for this tale set in the snow covered far North. Lucia, her mother and baby brother lived in a small house at the foot of a mountain. It was the coldest winter Lucia had ever known. Why, wind came through the cracks in their house and 'tossed the last of the flour in the barrel around.' Even worse, the sun did not come up, not for three days. It was total darkness. Lucia's mother hugged her and said, 'We will be each other's sun until the real sun returns.' However, the constant night made the baby fretful and their cow gave no milk, so Lucia went out into the cold to look for the sun. Her little white cat had jumped into the hood of her jacket so she was not alone. This was fortunate as it took her a long time to climb the mountain and she was so tired that she lay down in the snow. Fortunately, her cat bit her chin and awakened her or she might have frozen there just like old Bjorn 'frozen stiff and hard as cordwood.' What she did not know was that fearsome trolls lived on that mountain. They taunted and teased Lucia, telling her a rag ball was the sun. As it turned out they were no match for a little girl and her cat. Young readers will enjoy this story from Nordic lore, and admire the courage of a small child. - Gail Cooke
