Product Details


“Polacco’s signature illustration style in sketched pencil and color emphasizes the relationships among people, just as the text celebrates the power of connection and the miracle of love in unexpected places. Sweet and comforting.”—Kirkus Reviews

“In this autobiographical story, Polacco explores complex responses to grief; the beauty of community, diversity, and goodwill shines through her unmistakable marker-and-pencil-line illustrations.”—Publishers Weekly

“Polacco plumbs the seemingly endless nooks and crannies of her childhood to come up with another picture book to inspire warm feelings of community and caring. . . . Polacco’s emotion-laden pencil and watercolor illustrations bleed off the pages, just as her own warmth and affection for humanity overflow in the text. . . . [Readers will] welcome the notion that stars are the holes in the sky through which departed love ones keep watch over us . . . message of understanding and mutual affection.”—School Library Journal
