The Missing Sun is storyteller Peter Eyvindson's tenth children's picture book. In this story, Emily and her mother, who is a meteorologist, move to Inuvik. Emily enjoys her time in the North but finds it difficult to believe that the sun will disappear over the Christmas season. Her mother offers a scientific explanation for the disappearing sun; Emily's friend Josie offers her traditional explanation about Raven stealing the sun. Emily is confused but really enjoys the Christmas season without the sun. When she longs for the sun to return, she is unsure if it will ever return. Her friend assures her that the sun will return. This is a wonderful story about understanding the seasons in the Canadian North that combines the scientific with traditional storytelling. The text is illustrated with colour images that capture the reader's imagination about living in the North when the sun disappears. This read aloud title is also suitable for grade 4 student readers.
