My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If you’ve ever wondered what the star-making process consists of, you’ll find it within the pages of What Stars Are Made Of. Of course the story is purely fictional, but who cares. Twenty-one of Z. R. Southcombe’s original paintings are showcased, sans words, to tell the story of a star-maker who travels the world at night, gathering the tears of sad, angry and lonely children. Once back in his laboratory, the star-maker works his magic, making stars from the tears – and the world is full of love and light once more.
I adore this concept of creating a story solely from paintings. Children and adults will appreciate the positive message. Z. R. Southcombe’s artwork is charming, simple and beautiful. The message is positive and hopeful.
I would recommend What Stars Are Made Of for anyone who appreciates a positive message and beautiful artwork combined together in one imaginative book.
