9780141357430: The Very Lonely Firefly

A light-up surprise for the youngest child from Eric Carle, creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. As the sun sets a little firefly is born. The very lonely firefly sets off into the darkening sky, flashing its light as it searches for other fireflies. It sees many lights - including a light bulb, headlights, the reflecting eyes of a dog, cat and owl and finally some fireworks glittering and shimmering - until at last it finds the firefly friends it was looking for. Now the firefly isn't lonely any more. The joyful conclusion of this delightful story is brought vividly to life with tiny flashing lights on the final page to delight young children.

Review:

Many of Eric Carle's books begin with a small creature being born just as a great yellow sun rises. This time the hero is a firefly, and the inimitably Carle-ish cut-tissue paper orange and yellow sun is setting. The firefly buzzes off in search of companionship, but keeps following other lights by mistake--a candle, a torch, a lantern--and these in turn are all leading in the direction of a fireworks display. Finally, the lonely firefly finds the friends it is seeking--a dozen or more other fireflies. This is one of Eric Carle's books with a mechanical twist: in this case, the firefly's new group of friends start to flash (from tiny yellow bulbs embedded in the book) as you turn the last page. (The battery is replaceable.) (Ages 0 to 4 years) --RichardFarr
