Big Mooncake for the Little Star
A gorgeous picture book that tells a whimsical origin story of the phases of the moon, from award-winning, bestselling author-illustrator Grace Lin
When Little Star's mother bakes a delicious-looking mooncake, she leaves it in the night sky to cool. But it looks so tasty that Little Star can't wait, and every night she must take a little nibble of the perfectly round confection until instead of a glowing, round cookie, there is only a shining trail of crumbs!
As Little Star takes bites out of the mooncake, readers see that the moon itself wanes, passing through each phase until it becomes a new moon--and Little Star's mother bakes a new mooncake!
Illustrated in a limited palette of mainly black and yellow, this striking, book is the latest dazzling offering from award-winning author Grace Lin.
