The Storytelling Star: Tales of the Sun, Moon and Stars Gallery

The illustrations on this gallery were created for The Storytelling Star: Tales of the Sun, Moon and Stars,written by James Riordan and published by Pavilion Books in 1999.

“These unusual and alluring tales will familiarize children with the stars, constellations, sun, and moon as well as introduce them to the storytelling traditions of the world¹s ancient cultures. James Riordan has spent many years researching these myths and legends, discovering that, from China to South America, the stars and planets have inspired the earliest storytellers… This marvellous collection is enhanced with the splendid illustrations of Amanda Hall.”
