Flash and Gleam

By Sue Fliess
Illustrated by Khoa Le
Millbrook Press
Age 5 to 8

From the soft glow of a candle, to the blink of a firefly, to an explosion of fireworks: light is all around us. With lyrical, evocative writing, author Sue Fliess takes young readers on an ethereal tour of the world around them, guided by four curious children. Khoa Le’s colourful illustrations illuminate the journey, dreamily complementing Fliess’s elegantly sparse text. This book will have particular appeal for daydreamy young artists.
