A Big Mooncake for Little Star offers so many things to delight in. I love how the girls black pajamas are seamless with the black background (sky). There is an inviting refrain that has that right touch of playful mischief. I can practically hear her flight as she races back to bed, crumbs trailing behind her, or the patter as she gets out of bed, (expressive) bunny in tow.

A Big Mooncake for Little Star is an experience in quiet joy, love, and beauty. It’s so good. Don’t wait for bedtime, and you’ll probably want to read it with cake.
