James Mayhew, Starlight Sailor (Barefoot Books, 2009)
Full disclosure: since I wrote this review, and in part because of our reactions to Starlight Sailor and I Took the Moon for a Walk, my wife and mother-in-law have become Barefoot Books distributors.
Gentle fantasy book with lovely rhythm and rhyme. The illustrations may take a touch of getting used to, but they’re distinctive and fun, and the story is wonderful for imaginative pre-litters (and aren’t they all imaginative at that age?). This is rapidly becoming one of my favorites at storytime, and the Bean likes it a lot, too. *** ½
