words by Douglas Wood
art by Wendy Popp
The question of where the sunrise begins is asked with simple poetic words and elegant illustrations? The colors are are soft but striking in their beauty and Popp builds upon small details to give the reader various world views, some as close as a bird's egg in its nest, another as wide as the universe. Wood's words travel to various parts of the globe and back in a cyclical search for a seemingly basic question.
