    My mother used to read this book to us every Christmas It is a sweet story about acceptance, appearances, and what it means to celebrate a holiday It has lovely black and white drawings that I remember pouring over every year while my mother read it aloud.Any time one of us has rumpled or spiky hair, my brothers and I say, you look like star mother s youngest child

    What would this look like if it was rewritten for the 21st century Would the illustrations be colorful Would the language be updated to beupbeat and positive A star child wants to visit Earth to experience Christmas He gets his wish in an unexpected way when he spends Christmas with a grumpy, old woman who also wants to experience the same thing.

    Charming It reminds me of Jan Brett s books with trolls in them, though there are no trolls, just a baby star come down to earth to experience Christmas with a lonely old lady.
