The perfect story for anyone who’s ever felt overshadowed.
One little girl dreams of being a star. But whether it’s finding Mom’s lost wedding ring or winning the costume prize, her big sister always shines brighter. In her grandfather’s eyes, though, she is a star. As he dries her tears and they both gaze up at the night sky, he tells a story about how everything and everyone is made of stardust and we all shine in different ways. With illustrations from new talent Briony May Smith, this is a touching story about being true to yourself from award-winning author Jeanne Willis.
Pictures of cozy, lamplit rooms and a glowing fireplace give off almost palpable warmth, as does the love of her extended family. After she understands that she is made of stardust, she learns to shine her own light. —Booklist Online
