THE ONLY CHILDREN'S BOOK WRITTEN BY LEGENDARY CULT AUTHOR KURT VONNEGUT

Long out of print, SUN MOON STAR is a very Vonnegutian (which is to say humanistic and secular) take on the birth of Jesus, told from the new-born's perspective.


SUN MOON STAR is the story of the birth of Jesus - as told by Kurt Vonnegut. This children's book takes the new-born Jesus' perspective, offering beautiful and insightful descriptions of the world from someone newly born into it. In this book, we follow Jesus and meet the people most important to his life - presented in new and surprising ways.

A powerful departure from Vonnegut's more adult work, SUN MOON STAR gives readers a rare glimpse of the writer's talent in a format that's unique and unexpected. Originally published in 1980, the book is long out of print, only available as an E-book until now.

Review:

"... Sun Moon Star is simple in its execution but still manages to be inventive in its portrayal of The Greatest Story Ever Told and the illustrations by Ivan Chermayeff compliment the narrative wonderfully." --

About the Author:

Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007) was among the few grandmasters of twentieth-century American letters, one without whom the very term American literature would mean much less than it does now. Vonnegut's other books from Seven Stories Press include God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian (2001), and Like Shaking Hands with God (2011), both of which are also available from Turnaround. Ivan Chermayeff is a renowned illustrator, designer and artist whose illustrations, art installations for contemporary buildings and graphic design work have won numerous awards and accolades, including gold medals from the Society of Illustrators and the American Institute of Graphic Arts.
