When Molly Ate The Stars

Have you ever tasted the stars? On a cold, clear night, Molly gazes up at the bright stars above, which look good enough to eat. If she could reach far enough surely it wouldn't hurt to try just one. Would it?

Except it turns out that the stars are delicious, and when she's gobbled them all down, she feels "warm and bright, inside and out" — so much so that, as she walks home, she rejects her friends' offers for a lantern, hot tea, and companionship. It's not until she's climbed to her favorite place that she realizes how dark and gloomy the world is, that she recognizes the impact of her selfishness... and how to fix it.

Luminous and dreamlike as a falling star, this gorgeously illustrated picture book is a modern fable that shares timeless truths — how the consequences of our actions affect those around us and how generosity and friendship glow brightest of all.

Description

"Hesselberth depicts Molly’s dress as a kind of cage: While the stars she’s consumed glow visibly, their luminosity doesn’t extend beyond her.... Readers won’t miss the gracefully delivered message: Generosity and friendship triumph over greedy self-absorption." — Kirkus Reviews
