The Sun Fairy of Cupertino and The Sun Child Fairy Tales are inspired by the author's visit to California. They tell children and their parents the adventures of the Sun Team. The Sun Fairy is always smiling and merry. She even works on Sundays, which doesn't change her mood nonetheless. Solving problems and driving troubles away are a piece of cake for her.
The stories offer this simple recipe as a message to children - what to do when trouble comes along: always call on your friends when you need help, apply fantasy for problem-solving, never stop believing in miracles. Nations, religions and ethnicities not only unite but each one brings their unique values to help solve any issue. Fully illustrated, the tales are written in verse and are suitable for theater performances.
