In Brother Sun, Sister Moon, award-winning author Katherine Paterson re-imagines a hymn of praise originally written by Saint Francis of Assisi in 1224 called The Canticle of the Creatures.

Illuminated with the exquisite illustrations of scissor cut-paper artist Pamela Dalton, this picture book offers a stunningly beautiful tribute to nature. Each of Dalton’s illustrations is cut from one continuous piece of paper and consists of layers of illustrations resulting in breathtaking pieces of art on their own.
