Introducing the Skylighters -- the shadowy band of little characters who create our skyscapes. Way, way up and quite out of sight they busily paint the glowing sunsets, vibrant lightning-scored skies, rippled mackerel skies, and glowering thunder clouds.
The Skywash Brigade hurries each morning to cover over the dark night with bright day colors. And so it continues whatever the weather -- whether hail, fog, or storm -- until by day's end the Skylighters carefully lower the fading sun into the sunset while the Moon Gang arrives to hoist up the brightly polished, silver moon.
The Skylighters are shown in spectacular watercolor illustrations, drawn by artist Neil Canning. Told in wonderfully witty rhyming verse by Graeme Garden, this unique presentation captures the drama and excitement of our ever-changing skies. It will appeal to any child (or adult) who has ever gazed in awe at the panorama overhead.show more
