Why the Sun and the Moon Live in the Sky
by Elphinstone Dayrell, illustrated by Blair Lent

Sun and his wife, the moon, lived on Earth and built a large house so that the water people could visit. But so many poured in that they were forced to move to the sky.  "An African folktale is interpreted with originality and harmony." (Booklist, ALA)
