Reviews - What do customers think about Singing to the Sun?
Singing to the Sun deserves high praise for its original twist on classic storytelling. Sep 7, 2008
Singing to the Sun is a children's picturebook written in the style of a fairytale. A young prince grows up as the heir to powerful father and a wealthy yet greedy mother. When he hears of a life-or-death test posed by a faraway king in return for the hand in marriage of one of his three daughters, he decides to set out and face the challenge that has claimed the lives of so many other contenders. His father urges him to marry the princess who will bring him power; his mother demands that he marry the princess who will bring him wealth. The third princess brings naught but love. With the help of a clever jester, the prince is able to survive the challenge - but which princess will he choose, and will she choose him in return? A fairytale with a most unexpected twist at the end - the prince may not get to marry the princess, but that doesn't mean that the story ends badly for either of them! - Singing to the Sun deserves high praise for its original twist on classic storytelling.
