Katherine Paterson offers a revised version of the old prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi, Brother Sun, Sister Moon with beautiful cut-paper illustrations by Pamela Dalton. ¿We come to sing a song of praise to you,O God, the Lord of Heaven and Earth,who by your power and out of your love havecreated all things and called them good.¿

Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please make more! From the three parts I read, it was just amazing. I already have favorite characters. Glasseye and Eclipsekit(even though nothing much has happened with her....). I love how descriptive you are, and how you use not-so-common names! Reading your story gave me the same thrill as reading a new Warriors book! :D
