The Sun Egg
One day a little elf finds an astonishingly odd orange egg in the forest. She wonders what it could possibly be, until her fellow forest folk discover that this strange new egg is filled with sweet, delicious juice. The elf is sad that her "egg" has been used up, but a kindly thrush offers to take her south for the winter where the trees are filled with "sun eggs". I think all of us in Alaska can completely relate to this book!
