This touching story is such an emotional and sweet tale of a little boy longing for his father, and a tiny firefly full of determination and bravery. I really loved the writing style and the direction the story took. The writing uses many descriptions to pull the reader into the story; things like smells, feelings, light and darkness, and movement. It’s a story full of hope and emotional connection!
I liked the soft illustrations with a blue and yellow color scheme. Sometimes I wished the illustrations were a little more clear instead of so watery and misty, but I understand that the dreamy style is a beautiful reflection of the story.
