Her island neighbors call her "Darkfright" because she is so afraid of the night. As darkness comes on, Darkfright does anything in her power to keep it away--she turns on all the lights and bustles around the house as if it were day. Then one night a fallen star crashed through her door, a star that needs care and mending, and ultimately to be replaced in the night sky. A charming contemporary folktale that approaches a common childhood fear. Full color.
