Reviews

"A mouse embarks on a remarkable journey to find her father who's lost at sea in this heartwarming story of love and stars. The adorable, emotive illustrations, like a movie storyboard, perfectly follow the arc of the tale, in which the plot points connect like stars in a constellation. Children with military parents overseas will especially relate to—and find hope in—little Elizabeth's determination and unwillingness to give up. Ages three and up." —Allyce Amidon, Foreword Reviews
