Saving The Sun by Emma Pearl and Sara Ugolotti

Welcome to my stop on The Children's Book Review tour for Saving the Sun by Emma Pearl and illustrated by Sara Ugolotti. Page Street Kids sponsored this post and my review is my own opinion based on my personal view. Enjoy my review and enter the giveaway for your chance to win this book!

About the Book:

After an especially sweltering day, the ocean sparkles and twinkles so invitingly that instead of slipping beneath the horizon, the sun plunges into the ocean itself.

When the sun sinks and loses its fire, Luna and Poppa’s yearly vacation on Summer Island suddenly goes dark. Luna knows the sun needs their help―the sky looks all wrong, and it’s neither day nor night! But it’s a big job to do all on their own.

To bring back daylight, they must think of creative solutions, seeking help from the local dolphins, monkeys, birds, and more. With the power of teamwork and imagination, can they find a way to return the sun to its rightful place, and set it ablaze once more?

This imaginative tale will enchant readers as Luna, Poppa, and their new friends of the sea, beach, and air rise to the challenge of fixing the sky once more and―literally―save the day.



This book is ideal for ages 4 and up. With the beautiful illustrations anyone would love to read this book. It is a cute story of a girl and her grandfather and their fight to save the sun. I loved how the animals helped the humans with their task. This is a story that will delight many children because of the beautiful, soft color pages. It is short enough that early readers can read it but long enough to share a great story. This is a book I would read to my own children.

Emma Pearl was excited to continue Luna and Poppa’s adventures from Mending the Moon (Page Street Kids) and thought it only logical the pair would save the sun next. Emma has traveled to over fifty different countries, including many beautiful tropical islands like the one in this story. Her love of storytelling began at a young age, spurred on by her relationship with her great uncle, renowned children’s author Roald Dahl. She now lives in New Zealand with her family and their one-eyed cat, Penelope.
