Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-6-In this bizarre picture book, the author poses in the photograph illustrations; she plays Meera, a female clown on a quest to return fallen stars back to the sky. On her journey, she gets advice from a mechanical fortune teller, the Dream Tree, and other circus performers. Finally, a living, human version of the fortune teller explains to Meera that the stars are in "the kiss on your cheek,/the strength in your steps,/the hope in your heart." The Wizard of Oz-like premise disappoints here. The story lacks clarity and logic. Though well-executed, the photos are jarring. During some scenes, readers are given blindingly white snow, top to bottom. Also, some images are creepy, such as a black-and-white shot of an acrobat "Spinner" hanging upside down from a tree.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.

"In Starfall, Toronto performer, writer, and director Diana Kolpak has transferred her considerable theatrical skills to the page. Enlivened by Kathleen Finlay?s striking photography. . . Starfall presents a starkly beautiful, original world. Finlay?s images are sophisticated, fantastical, and unique, though a couple of the photos - such as the person caught by the Spinner in a swath of fabric - may be a little disturbing for younger readers. However, Kolpak's lyrical, melodic prose is reassuring, and in spite of its light tone, the story works on two levels: as a whimsical tale about a clown, and as an allegory for the triumph of courage and belief over evil and darkness."
-- Quill & Quire Starred Review
