As the sun sets a little firefly is born. The very lonely firefly sets off into the darkening sky, flashing its light as it searches for other fireflies. It sees many lights - including a light bulb, headlights, the reflecting eyes of a dog, cat and owl and finally some fireworks glittering and shimmering - until at last it finds the firefly friends it was looking for. Now the firefly isn't lonely any more. The joyful conclusion of Eric Carle's delightful story is brought vividly to life with tiny flashing lights on the final page to delight young children.
Fair. Acceptable-This Hard Back Book is readable. The covers are intact but may have creases and considerable wear. Pages may have a number of folds/creases and may include considerable notes and highlighting but text is legible. The "Head", "Tail" and "Fore-Edge" may include considerable markings and/or spots. Thanks for supporting our Mission at Goodwill.
Publishers Weekly, 1995-06-05 With characteristic simplicity-and the now expected visual ``surprise'' at book's end-Carle delivers another heartwarming tale about a diminutive creature on a quest. In the author/artist's words, his latest story "is about belonging." As the sun sets, a firefly is born: "It stretched its wings and flew off into the darkening sky." Searching for other fireflies, the lonely little guy flies hopefully toward other lights (a bulb in a window, a candle, a flashlight, the shining eyes of an owl, car headlights, fireworks), only to discover that they are not what he is looking for. Youngsters will be as tickled as the no-longer-lonely firefly to find, on the last spread, "a group of fireflies, flashing their lights"-with the help of replaceable batteries (final version not seen by PW). Carle's richly hued, collage-like art and gentle text will be comfortingly familiar to his numerous young devotees. Ages 4-up. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
