A good little story book for small children. Emphasizes the importance of imagination through the beautifully elaborate illustrations. The main characters of the story are in black and white. ( )

The Boy from the Sun is a magical tale. It starts out as an ordinary day. As three children sit on the sidewalk on the way home from school. The children were all sad. Then a little body with a yellow shining head floats down beside them. Asking them why they are sad. With no answer the little boy makes a beautiful bird appear along with many more magical things. The children follow the boy as he takes them on a journey to the Sun.

The drawings are very simple black and white. The boy with the yellow shining head introduces all kinds of things that are colorful to the world to the children. ( )

An artistic triumph let down by the perplexing insertion of a mawkish, cackhanded, sub-Hallmark "inspirational" poem near the end. But one can skip over this abomination, or replace it with some really good verse, and enjoy the piercingly beautiful illustration and the simple charm of the story itself. ( )
