Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
A star is how you know it’s almost night.
As soon as you see one, there’s another, and another.
And the dark that comes doesn’t feel so dark.
What if you could have a star?


From acclaimed author Mary Lyn Ray and two-time Caldecott Honor winner Marla Frazee comes this tender, evocative—and profound—exploration of stars both near and far.

Illustrations and Outtakes from Stars
(Click on Images to Enlarge)


I spend a lot of my time sketching and erasing. Eraser crumbs get all over the floor of my studio.

When I do the finish, I use a very tiny brush and apply many, many layers of watercolor. Sometimes, after all that, I don't like how it turns out.

Then I start all over again and do it in a different, and hopefully better, way. It can be frustrating.



Like when my son saw this painting, he asked, "Why are those kids reading in the dark?"

So I did this one over too. And it only took three weeks! Sheesh.



This one took even longer to paint, what with all those snowflakes, each one different.

I splattered over the top of it with white paint on a toothbrush. (Not the one I brush my teeth with.)

And finally, these fireworks were done not with an eraser, tiny brush, or toothbrush, but with... gel pens!
