Summary "The sun goddess Amaterasu shines with great beauty and kindness. She makes the crops grow in the fields and warms the faces of the people on earth. But behind her lurks her brother, the storm god Susano. Susano is angry and jealous of Amaterasu. Fearful of her brother, Amaterasu hides herself in a cave and plunges the world into cold and darkness. How will the other gods convince Amaterasu to come out from her hiding place? And how will they keep Susano from getting his revenge?"--Pg. 4 of cover.
