On a warm spring day, a young boy asks his beloved father a simple question, “Who owns the sun?”
His father wisely explains that no one can own the sun…nor can they own the wind or stars. But when the boy overhears a shocking conversation, he must ask his father the most difficult question of all, “Can one human being own another?”
Since it was first published 30 years ago, Who Owns the Sun? has touched generations of readers with its enduring message of freedom and the power of the human spirit.
Stacy Chbosky was 14 years old when she wrote and illustrated this story.
“…a lyrical tale of the need for freedom and of the dignity of the human spirit.” –School Library Journal
