“One morning the North Wind and the Sun saw a rider with a new cloak,” so opens this picture book by illustrator/writer Brian Wildsmith. The wind and the sun squabble over who will be the first to succeed in getting the man to take off his new cloak. The duel begins. Will the ferocious power of the wind stand a chance against the fierce, warming rays of the sun?
Wildsmith has revised a previously unknown but timeless fable of La Fontaine, and has added stunning illustrations with warm rich color, each one a delightful work of art.
