DESCRIPTION 

Why the Sun and the Moon Live in the Skis an African folktale from southern Nigeria. It tells how the sun and water once lived on earth as friends, but because the sun failed to build his house large enough, he and his wife, the moon, were driven into the Sky when the water came to visit them.

This book has stayed steady and true to readers for decades and still sells out.  It’s definitely one to add to your collection of fairy and folktales.
