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


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.


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