Annotations for East of the Sun, West of the Moon
Baker & Taylor
When a white bear comes to the city to get her, a girl travels with him to his secret palace in the mountains before setting off on a journey to the homes of the four Winds and beyond, to the castle East of the Sun, West of the Moon.
From the moment she saw him, she knew the bear had come for her. How many times had she dreamt of the bear?. Now, here he was, as if spelled from her dreams.
?I will come with you, Bear," she said.
It is the beginning of an extraordinary journey for the girl. First to the bear's secret palace in faraway mountains, where she is treated so courteously, but where she experiences the bear's unfathomable sadness, and a deep mystery?
As the bear's secret unravels, another journey unfolds? a long and desperate journey, that takes the girl to the homes of the four Winds and beyond, to the castle east of the sun, west of the moon.
This beautiful, mysterious story of love, loyalty and above all, freedom, is inspired by fairy tale, and is magically told and illustrated by Jackie Morris.
