dc.description.abstractHere the wind and the sun start by laying out their philosophies. The wind insists that nothing is stronger than force and that he can make people do anything he wants if he blows hard enough. The sun smiles and speaks of people wanting to cooperate when he shines warmly. Later the sun will wink and grin. The two are presented in bright design fashion, with a smile at the center of the sun's rings, while the wind is a set of blue and purple waves and swirls. The bet is then set up by the sun--alas, in unfortunate terms. I bet I can persuade him to take it off but you can't make him do it. Later we read: There was no way that the wind could make the man take off his coat. I want to scream Of course! The wind would never make that bet! The image of the flattened winds as they give up is excellent; the sun at this point is laughing. The book's last two spreads include multi-colored pastel hills and these two lines: The sun smiled warmly and is still smiling today. The man's reaction to both wind and sun is presented in terms of good increments of buttoning and unbuttoning the coat, respectively. This book, in excellent condition, was printed by Mennonite Press, Inc.en_US
