Long ago, when Sun and Moon still lived on earth, they invited their new friend Ocean to visit their home. After many protests (after all, there was a lot of her), Ocean finally agreed to come. Sun and Moon worked and prepared for many days, but when Ocean finally arrived, they discovered that nothing could have prepared them for this visit!
Internationally acclaimed storyteller Diane Wolkstein and the celebrated illustrators of Dr. Seuss’s My Many Colored Days spin a magical creation myth that is filled with surprises.

Read information about the authorDiane Wolkstein was a folklorist and author of children's books. She also served as New York City's official storyteller from 1968–1971.
As New York's official storyteller, Wolkstein visited two of the city's parks each weekday, staging hundreds of one-woman storytelling events. After successfully talking her way into the position, she realized "there was no margin for error," she said in a 1992 interview. "I mean, it was a park. [The children would] just go somewhere else if they didn't like it."
She also had a radio show on WNYC, Stories From Many Lands, from 1968 until 1980, and she helped create the Storytelling Center of New York City.
Wolkstein authored two dozen books, primarily collections of folk tales and legends she gathered during research trips. She made many visits to China, Haiti and Africa.
Wolkstein was born in Newark, New Jersey and grew up in Maplewood, New Jersey. Her father Henry was an accountant and her mother Ruth was a librarian. She received a bachelor's degree from Smith College and a master's degree in education from Bank Street College of Education. While living in Paris, she studied mime under Étienne Decroux.
Wolkstein was in Taiwan to research a book of Chinese folk stories when she underwent emergency surgery for a heart condition. She died in the city of Kaohsiung at the age of 70.
