Intricate, delicately drawn and colored illustrations flavor this tale of a child's dreamy adventures during a visit to her grandmother's. Ages 4-up. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- While a little girl is visiting her grandmother who lives in a lovely Mediterranean setting, she discovers an old trunk full of toys that come magically to life at bedtime. That night when Nora wishes that she could have the stars that appear to be so close, the toys gather them up from the sky and bring them to her. They spend an enchanted evening playing with the stars; when Nora realizes how sad and dark the sky is without any twinkling lights, she sends them back where they belong and falls contentedly asleep. Soft pastel drawings evoke the lush tropical setting and capture the whimsical mood of this quiet bedtime fantasy. Pages are attractively laid out with ample white space to set off the cozy, detailed illustrations. --Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, N.Y.
