The Boy from the Sun is an award-winning children's book by Canadian author Duncan Weller.

Plot[edit]

Three children sit unenthusiastically on a sidewalk after a day of school. The Boy from the Sun floats down from the sky and takes the three children on a magical journey in order to show them that life does not need to carry on dull and uninteresting as how it has been in the past. They are taken through a wonderful forest filled with things they have never seen before with their eyes, such as the colors, people and animals. The story is concluded with a poem from the Boy from the Sun to the children, reminding them to always remember the beauty, and that their imagination has no limits.

Awards[edit]

Weller won the Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children's Book Award in 2008 for The Boy from the Sun.[1]
