Picture Book Review: A Wave of Stars

A Wave of Stars by Dolores Brown
A Wave of Stars

5 out of 5 stars

Mimbi and Kipo are a seal and a turtle who see the legendary moonbow, a rainbow created by the moon’s light. The magical moonbow transforms them into human children, and they meet a kindly fisherman who helps them to find a way to become animals again.

I loved this imaginative story, especially for the legend of the enchanting moonbow. This gave the story arc some great depth and history. The whole thing is absolutely whimsical! The characters are sweet and innocent, and the magic is delightful.

The illustrations are lovely with calming blues and greens. There are bright pops of color in the fish and coral, and the art style is soft and wavy. The coolest thing about the artwork is the border where the colored illustration turns into a pencil sketch. It’s really clever and a beautiful design. The gorgeous art work along with the bewitching story makes this book particularly sweet and enjoyable!
