A classic has a certain universal appeal. Great works of literature touch us to our very core beings--partly because they integrate themes that are understood by readers from a wide range of backgrounds and levels of experience. Themes of love, hate, death, life, and faith touch upon some of our most basic emotional responses.

Written and illustrated in the style of an old manuscript, with French and Spanish translations of the English text, the story follows a moth on its meandering journey to visit the Sun. At the end of the book, there are thumbnails of the "old artist's" illustrations, with space to write your own story.
