Book Review - Little Star
Little Star is Anthony DeStefano's newest book. Many of you may be familiar with other of Mr. DeStefano's books, especially the popular A Travel Guide to Heaven. His newest book is a children's book but one that even adults will enjoy reading. I found it to be amusing and very touching as it tugged at my heartstrings.
Little Star is the smallest of all the stars in the universe. He was so small that he was virtually ignored by all the other stars. He is made to feel as if he did not matter. Yet on one special night, he encounters a king like no other and learns about love and sacrifice.
I do not want to give away much of the story. However, for those of you who may want to learn more about the book and the story behind it, you can click here for the press release.
This book may soon become a family favorite for Christmas. The illustrations by Mark Elliot give an old-fashioned quality to the story, especially in the family scenes. I particularly liked the way Little Star was drawn. I thought that the little tuft of hair on top of Little Star's head was rather whimsical.
I think this darling little book would make a wonderful gift for Christmas to give to someone you love.

Mahalo Mr. DeStefano for the early Christmas treat!
