Pat, pat, pat...
Little Star's soft feet tiptoed to the Big Mooncake.
Little Star loves the delicious Mooncake that she bakes with her mama. But she's not supposed to eat any yet! What happens when she can't resist a nibble?
In this stunning picture book that shines as bright as the stars in the sky, Newbery Honor author Grace Lin creates a heartwarming original story that explains phases of the moon.
Reviews all around the world
I suspect most real-life mooncakes vanish more quickly than the time it takes to read this book, and the smile your youngster will be making at the end of this book would match the smile of someone with a satisfied stomach. Yes, the ending will bring a smile. Likewise, all kids are kind of mischievous and Little Star’s mom knows this. The fun is two-fold; seeing the moon change its phases, and seeing a young miss tiptoeing around at night to snitch. Grace Lin is doubly-talented; she’s both author and illustrator and her pictures are exactly right. This book is for 4-8-year olds.
