This is a tale about a man whose job it is to illuminate the heavens. He roams the lonely, windy countryside carrying a ladder. When he passes through one particular village, he runs into an orphan boy, who is fascinated by what he does and then decides to follows, him. Together, they travel throughout the countryside polishing the stars. But, one day some woodcutters came along and cut down the ladder, the man and the boy remain in the heavens, their only visible legacy a shooting star. The tale represents modern fantasy at its best! The story is easily unfolded through the beautiful artwork. Unlike the traditional bright colors used in children books the author use dark earth tones to set the mood. I would recommend for ages 6 and up. For this particularly book, I think it would be a good ideal for teachers to read aloud and have their class create an alternate ending. Also, it¿s a good book to bring for show n tells to get away from the traditional children books.
