From the Publisher
It's a winter's tale about angels and the origin of snowwith no references to Christmas.
Arin and Avery, the young angel-protagonists, are constantly fighting, bickering and competing with one another.
The authoritarian "straight man" is a burly, earring-wearing angel named Sarge. (Even he can't make Arin and Avery behave.)
Singhalaka was selected to illustrate STARDUSTERS partly because there are no angels in Thai culture. Working in a happy, pie-in-your-face style, she developed an original vision of these fantastic beings unhindered by Western preconceptions.

Even though they think Sarge is tricking them into getting along, Arin and Avery vow that can never happen. Rushing to be the fastest, each cleans ten stars. Then they fighting each other to get to the last star, and Arin and Avery crash into the stardust barrel, sending stardust showering to Earth.
Sarge refuses to fix their mess, and now the feuding angels must work together before the stardust hits Earth. When they can't prevent the stardust from touching Earth, they become the inventors of something wondrous and magical.
Arin and Avery break the perfect angel model in STARDUSTERS. Arguing, as ordinary boys are wont to do, these marvelous angels create their own brand of wonderful mischief. Not only must they take responsibility for their actions, but they are left to fix the problem. When all turns out well with their new creation, these feuding angels can't help but charm the hearts of children and adults alike. The amazing art a number of media in remarkable illustrations certain to please the most discerning eye. A treat to they eye, this whimsical, marvelous children's book comes very highly recommended!
