What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A hilarious story of wishes and friendship by Drew Daywalt, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Day the Crayons Quit, and Molly Idle, the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of Flora and the Flamingo. Everyone knows that kids wish upon stars, but did you know that stars wish upon kids, too? When Clyde makes a wish on a star before bedtime, he doesn’t expect the star to actually show up in his bedroom. Then Star reveals she made a wish, too! But both their wishes are secret. From the author of the blockbuster hit The Day the Crayons Quit and the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator Molly Idle comes a hilarious and heartfelt story about finding friendship in the most unexpected places. Praise for Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Kid “Daywalt succeeds in lightening the heavy topic of loneliness with plenty of breezy banter. The real magic is in colored-pencil artwork by Idle, which has the visual drama and framing of classic animation, as well as a captivating celestial protagonist, who floats through the air with gymnastic nimbleness.”–Publishers Weekly
