Father Sun, Mother Moon
In a superstitious village where all things are painted white, the arrival of a stranger clad in bright, multicolored clothing brings a tide of bad luck. A black cloud appears, bringing with it a bolt of lightning that turns the school gray.
The odd stranger offers to paint the school. But, to the villagers’ dismay, she merely sits atop the building and plays her flute as the sun rises and sets. The children, though, delight in her music and colorful stories. Then one night, when the moon is full and high, the stranger begins to paint. When at last the rooster crows, the villagers awake to a most unusual surprise.
