Product Overview

One of the most acclaimed children''s book illustrators of our time now takes his legendary skill with watercolor to new heights in this lavish visual adventure. As a curious little chipmunk leaves his nest to greet the twilight, he gazes at the glittering sky above him. He can''t help but also notice the sparkling dewdrops on a spider''s web, the lights of the fireflies, and the shimmers of moonlight on the water. "How I wonder what you are!" marvels the tiny creature, launching a dreamlike quest to reach for the stars.
Inspired by one of our most popular children''s lullabies, Jerry Pinkney''s gentle world--where the loving arms of nature embrace us despite darkness or uncertainty--is perfect for easing little ones into dreamland.

Jerry Pinkney
Jerry Pinkney's talent as an artist earned him a scholarship to the Philadelphia Museum College of Art. After graduation he worked as a designer for a greeting card company. Pinkney published his first picture book for children, THE ADVENTURES OF SPIDER: A WEST AFRICAN FOLK TALE, in 1964. In 1986 he won the Coretta Scott King Award for his illustrations for THE PATCHWORK QUILT; the following year he won the award again for HALF MOON AND ONE WHOLE STAR. His illustrations for THE TALKING EGG earned a 1988 Caldecott Honor.

Annotation A curious chipmunk explores what twinkles in nature, including a dandelion seed, a dewy spider web, fireflies, and eventually the stars. Starting out on the ground, the chipmunk works his way up to a bird's nest, which becomes a boat to voyage in. With lots of imagination and beautiful illustrations.
