By A Customer on October 24, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This is probably my favorite childrens' book of all time. The illustrations are so mint, you'll hardly be able to believe it. The best part is when Torchy flies to the city and gets blown away by the crazy mix of lights. I promise you'll love this book.

Format: Paperback
Torchy is a firefly who is different from all the others and doesn't like it one bit, so, after talking to the owl, he flies off to find himself, and learns to love being who he is.

The story itself isn't too unique, but it's cute enough, and holds the attention of my children. However, the illustration is great, with totally black pages and spashes of color. The city view is very well done and artistic. I don't think I've ever seen a childrens book illustrated quite like it. You should definitely see this book.

I loved this book when my parents read it to me as a very little child. I'm delighted that it's still in print, so I can give it to all my friends who are having children now!
