RosettaBooks, the leading independent eBook publisher, is pleased to release Sun Moon Star, an extraordinary children’s story by legendary author Kurt Vonnegut. In a departure from his well-known satirical and dramatic style, Vonnegut delves into the commonplace nativity story, but through an unexpected perspective.

“We are delighted to add this special piece to the list of Vonnegut works we have made available in digital form at RosettaBooks,” said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of RosettaBooks.

How did the world appear to the infant eyes of the newborn Jesus? This is the question Vonnegut sets out to answer in his unconventional story. Sun Moon Star is told through baby Jesus’ eyes, offering a vision of wonder and reverence that both children and adults can appreciate.

Sweet, imaginative prose is complemented by simple, beautiful illustrations. The innocent perspective will inspire curiosity and awe in readers. A compelling and inventive take on the Christmas story, families will want to include this children’s book as one of their new traditions.

Vonnegut’s ability to craft language with razor-sharp humor and poignant reflection secured his place next to Mark Twain in the American literary canon. His bestselling novel Slaughterhouse-Five was inspired by his experience as a German prisoner of war during World War II.

A prolific writer, Vonnegut published novels, short stories, essays, plays, articles, speeches, and correspondence, some of which only became available posthumously.

Sun Moon Star is available exclusively on Kindle for $5.99.
