Description
One night, the old toys at Nora's grandmother's house magically come to life and coax Nora into a happy romp throughout the enchanted evening, where they gather the stars from the sky and crown her star princess. Ever-thoughtful Nora, however, decides that the stars are meant to shine for all the world, and she tenderly returns them to their proper place.Ichikawa has made this simple embroidery on a child's imaginative play into a joyful dream. Very nice indeed. -- Kirkus Reviews Ichikawa's muted watercolors, brightened with the glowing stars, have a comfortable, homey ambiance due in part to the story's setting -- a spacious old country home that invites the kind of imaginative play the story celebrates. -- BooklistSoft pastel drawings evoke the lush tropical setting and capture the whimsical mood of this quiet bedtime fantasy. -- School Library Journal
