A book to make readers feel warmer. Friends join together to enable a magical happening, to make Mountain feel warmer and brighter. Mountain faces away from the sunrise, so he himself blocks out the amazing daily rise of the sun, the beginning of each new day. He has never seen the sky turn rosy red, yellow and change into the bright blueness of day. Snow-capped, he lives his days with his face remaining shaded and cool. He says he would turn around if he weren’t so heavy! His friend bear tries pushing Mountain round, and bird suggests music might help Mountain to imagine the sunrise. Squirrel’s music sounds like the beginning of something, but it only makes Mountain wish more than ever to see the sun rise. One final idea, and eureka, Mountain witnesses a huge yellow disc emerge slowly before him, and drift up into the sky. In the balloon’s basket, Bird leads the flying chorus, Squirrel plays his song, whilst Bear blows the balloon upwards with all his might. How the Mountain is moved! He feels happy. He feels alive. For anything is possible with friends at your side. Illustrated as a snowy landscape with stark trees and cartoon like creatures, the colours mirroring the time of day or night, readers will warm to the simplicity of the artwork. A book to reinforce the value of friendship.
