Draw me a star. And the artist drew a star. It was a good star. Draw me a sun, said the star. And the artist drew a sun. _And on the artist draws, bringing the world to life picture by beautiful picture until he is spirited across the night sky by a star that shines on all he has made. In _Draw Me a Star, Eric Carle celebrates the imagination in all of us with a beguiling story about a young artist who creates a world of light and possibility.
