Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"A delightful read-aloud"—Kirkus Reviews
* The relationship between Little Star and her mother offers a message of empowerment and reassurance. Lin's loving homage to the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is sure to become a bedtime favorite.—School Library Journal, starred review
* This folkloric pourquoi tale effectively blends peaceful bedtime rhymes with the lure of irresistible snacking temptation—BCCB, starred review
"The gouache illustrations are excellent....Intriguing characters come alive."—Booklist
"A charming, childlike quality infuses the artwork; boldly hued gouache pictures feature skies and lawns as patterned as the girl's kitchen wallpaper and curtains."—Publishers Weekly
...wonderful as a bedtime book all year long. The New York Times
Publishers Weekly
Lin's vibrant gouache paintings are a stellar fit for this story...this is a gentle, beautiful book for all. BookPage
In this bedtime read that sounds like a lullaby, a child longs to eat a mooncake she baked with her mom. Each night she secretly takes a bite, bringing about a new phase of the moon. Parents Magazine
Lin successfully combines three distinctive and memorable elements: a fable that avoids seeming contrived, a vision of a mother and child living in cozy harmony, and a night kitchen of sendakian proportions.
