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.
