Mayu is a lonely old woman existing at the fringes of her village, but when a baby falls from the heavens, her life changes forever. The Baby Who Fell From the Sky is an endearing new fable rich with shamanic ritual, Peruvian tradition, and a touch of magic.
While tending her sheep in the Andes Mountains, Mayu finds a baby, but the villagers accuse her of stealing it, for she’s too old to have a child.
She and the baby flee to a new home among Inca ruins where the spirits Apu, Pachamama, and Inti watch over them. As Mayu’s skill as a weaver magically improves and the baby grows faster than any child should, she realizes he is special and struggles with his inevitable departure.
With a mix of shamanic ritual, Peruvian folklore, and a touch of magical realism, this endearing tale is sure to become a family favorite.
