Overview


For many days, there had been no food in the Inuit camp where Brother and Little Sister lived . . . . They had set out early that morning, hoping to find some food they could bring back to share with their people."

Sister Lightning and Brother Thunder are children at play, dancing across the great arctic sky in this touching story about the search for a home.

Returning to camp, the children find their people have left without them. Through the long, cold night, they huddle near a fire and talk into the night. Unable to decide which of their animal cousins they should stay with while they wait for the return of their people, the children decide to live amongst the stars instead. Their journey to the sky is a homecoming in which they rediscover the beauty of play.

Orphans in the Sky is a moving account of the courage and loyalty experienced by two lonely orphans who find a home in the sky.
