Nightlights

Amazon.com Rating:

Every night, tiny stars appear out of the darkness in little Sandy's bedroom. She catches them and creates wonderful creatures to play with until she falls asleep, and in the morning brings them back to life in the whimsical drawings that cover her room -- at the expense of her schoolwork. Nobody seems to understand why Sandy's pictures are so important to her

One day, Morfie, a mysterious pale girl, appears at school. And she knows all about Sandy's drawings. But when she appears in Sandy's nighttime world -- and tries to take control -- Sandy will have to muster all of her imagination, confidence, and determination to defend her beloved world...

Nightlights is a beautiful story about fear, insecurity, and creativity, from the enchanting imagination of Lorena Alvarez.

Description

"When a tall, pale-skinned girl with purple hair befriends her, Sandy is excited, though there is something eerie and unsettling about her new companion. Her excitement soon turns to anger as Morfie enters her imaginative nighttime world and tries to take it over. Readers will cheer at the clever way in which Sandy regains control. Using a lovely palette that includes a liberal amount of rich, dark purple, Colombian-born Alvarez has drawn a world that harks back to her native Bogotá and days in Catholic school, evoking it in wonderful detail and atmosphere." -- Kirkus Reviews
