Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—An original story of how the stars came to be in the sky. Little Moon Princess lives alone on a moon amid a field of jeweled flowers surrounded by a vast darkness. A sparrow stops by and comments on the loveliness of her home. Little Moon Princess agrees and says she is happy but it frightens her that she cannot see beyond it. The sparrow suggests spreading her jewels in the sky in order to light up the darkness and together they do just that. The result is a beautiful night sky. Lee's stunning use of watercolor and ink creates the illusion of light, and her art offers readers a breathtaking view of the night sky. A lovely read-aloud at storytime.—C. J.

From Booklist

“Long ago, before there were stars,” a sparrow flies through vast darkness toward a faraway light, which turns out to be a jewel-flower-covered moon. There, the sparrow is welcomed by a young princess, who says that she gets frightened: “The darkness is so very big and I am so very small.” The sparrow comes up with an idea about how to extend the jewels light, and he and the princess work together to bring beauty, illumination, and comfort to the universe. The story concludes with a reminder to remember the moon princess when stargazing. In her first picture book, Lee offers a charming pourquoi tale that is also a sympathetic, reassuring depiction of night fears and the value of friendship. The glowing illustrations in richly graduated tones include dramatic scenes, such as one in which the princess gazes toward a seemingly endless gray-black expanse, as well as sweet ones, as when bird and princess nestle beneath a blanket of stars. With the flavor of a classic tale, this simply phrased story will engage both young listeners and independent readers. Preschool-Grade 3. --Shelle Rosenfeld

This story is a sweet story about how the stars came to be in the sky. The story is a wonderful tale of a friendship between a young princess who is afraid of the dark away from her moon home and a sparrow. They find a solution to lighting the dark space around her moon and work together. It is a perfect book for children who are afraid of the dark and just allows your imagination to soar.

This story delights by boy/girl twins. We read it to them when they were two & they fell in love with the story. Its helped them talk about being afraid of the dark, of the beauty of the world and how one person can give a priceless gift to the world.

Thank you YJ Lee for your lovely story.

I read this one to my daughter today at the library and just fell in love with it! It was beautifully illustrated and the writing superb. The story is very magical and so relatable for my 3 yr old too. I have a feeling we will be owning this one much sooner than later!
