Lucia is very close to her family. She lives in the beautiful mountains with her mother and her newborn baby brother, a cow and a cat. Their days are filled with love and happiness. The cow gives them milk while their cat sleeps in front of the fireplace. Things get really scary when one winter day the sun disappears and darkness takes over their cabin. Lucia's mother reassures that everything will be fine. The mischievous Lucy does not believe her and she decided to go out in the mountain with her cat and bring back light. On her way, she almost loses her beloved cat, freezes terribly, gets lost in the big mountains and meets some very scary trolls. The illustrations are so well done, that you almost get to feel the cold, see the sun and believe in the trolls. LUCIA AND THE LIGHT by PHYLLIS ROOT with illustrations by MARY GRANDPRE is a story that you don't want to miss.

For K through grade 2.
