A sleepless night turns into a marvelous adventure through the stars in this dreamy bedtime story
It’s the kind of night when you just can’t fall asleep.
You feel as though everyone in the world is asleep but you.
“Oh, I see a light!
Is somebody awake?”
Brimming with wonder and enchantment, award-winning author-illustrator Sang-Keun Kim’s Star Fishing imagines who else might be awake on a sleepless night—taking young readers and listeners on an adventure through the stars and into sweet dreams.
**STARRED REVIEW**Shelf Awareness —
"Kim's dreamy tale is a timeless balm for those all-too-familiar nights of elusive sleep. . .The child, Little Rabbit and their new friends offer a welcoming community in which the sleepless need not feel alone."
"A dreamy folkloric adventure with astronomical appeal that’s tailor-made for bedtime reading."Kirkus Reviews —
"Sweeping expanses of jewel-toned blues and airy teals make up the night sky, with dreamy scenes anchored by the glowing moon until the toy-like animals romp around in shower of stars. The winding down of the friends’ adventures will likely bring on the yawns, but for those particularly stubborn insomniacs, this could inspire some peaceful star gazing until sleep arrives."The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books —
"Employing spare second-person narration and limited dialogue, Kim offers a sensitive, dreamlike lullaby for the restless."Publishers Weekly —
