Friendship, kindness, and gratitude are all illuminated in a quiet tale of a magical girl with mothlike wings.
Nestled in a little nook in an old oak tree is a tiny girl named Ella. Ella loves light, but must be sure to avoid the sun because of her delicate wings. Flittering about at night, she collects light from everything that glows and glimmers in the darkness, always making sure to share the light she gathers with those who need it most. Until one day, when her animal friends decide it's their turn to give back--with a creative plan that just may make Ella's dream of seeing the sun come true. New York Times best-selling illustrator Lucy Fleming's author-illustrator debut is a sweet story about the power of giving to others and celebrating our friends, as well as a reminder that we all have a light within us that is worthy of being shared.
