*"Awe-inspiring artwork as powerful as any force of nature."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)From Caldecott Medalist Ed Young comes a picture book retelling of Aesop's fable The Wind and the Sun. Once upon the sky, there were three powers--the Wind, the Rain, and the Sun--each claiming to be the mightier than the others. One day, the powers came upon a shepherd girl fast asleep upon a hill, so they made a bet to see who could make her take her cap off. Who will be the strongest of them all? Rendered in exquisite mixed-media collage, Caldecott Medalist Ed Young's gorgeous and deeply poignant retelling of the well-known Aesop's fable The Wind and the Sun, proves that sometimes gentle persuasion and kindness are the best virtues of all.
