How the Sun got to Coco’s house

Bob Graham
Walker Books

The skeleton of this story is the passing of the Sun over countries as the Earth rotates beneath. As it goes, the reader is given glimpses of cultures and activities below, finally bursting through Coco’s bedroom window, then to follow her day. This is typical Bob Graham but saying that means to expect genius; to share intimate moments with small detail; to be shown how the world naturally passes its time.
