Luna- A Story of Christ, by Bob LaBass, is the story of the Savior’s birth, death and resurrection, as told from the point of view of the sun, the moon, and the Christmas star.
Luna is upset when she hears Sol gets a special day to shine at the birth of the baby Jesus. Sol gets to see everything important down on earth. To make matters worse, Luna learns her own special day will be marred by Jesus’ death. It is not until she meets a new star named Beth that she learns the importance of this singular event.
The author asked me to illustrate this story while I was in the fine art department at Brigham Young University- Idaho earning my bachelor’s degree. Working on this project gave me the opportunity to utilize what I was learning and apply it immediately to a project I was pleased to be a part of. This picture book is an excellent gift to celebrate the life of the Savior at Christmas, or Easter, or for a Baptism.
