    The Fire Walker

    $10.95 $10.95

    The wind rocked the little village long ago, blowing out every fire and leaving the people with no way to cook their food or keep warm. All they could do was hope for the arrival of the legendary Fire Walker to bring heat and light back to them. For one brave child, however, the sight of a falling star and special messages from a firefly encourage a daring search to find the fire and help people. With the assured storytelling of Shezza Ansloos and the compelling drama of Sheldon Dawson's paintings, The Fire Walker blends the magical power and myth and the fearlessness of a child's imagination.
