A young boy is proud of having caught a jar full of fireflies, which seems to him like owning a piece of moonlight, but as the light begins to dim he realizes he must set the insects free or they will die.
Fireflies is a refreshingly simple and honest book. Barefoot running in the summer grass. Meeting friends. Catching fireflies in a jar. Getting called home by mom and dad. All these touches and more, brought to life by the unique illustrations, make this a timeless, nostalgic summer tale.
