A sweet story with an understated message. Might have earned another star if I cared for the illustrations. So much twinkling on Earth the stars did not shine through.

We are all made of stars. We can share our love and kindness everyday.

The illustrations are by far one of my favorites I've seen in a children's picture book in a very long time! I want to start off by thanking Compendium Inc and Alita Joy from @abookaffair on YouTube, for sending me these books in the October giveaway she hosted.

This was a beautiful story with gorgeous art to match. I will definitely be reading this to my niece and hopefully my own kids one day.

I loved The Man Made of Stars as much as my daughter (4). She was fascinated with the pictures. The message the book delivers is much needed in this world. The pictures are incredible.

I wish I'd had this book with wonderful, ethereal illustrations when I was a child. I'd sure have been looking for the man made of stars at twilight in my own town. A lovely cross between a modern fairy tale and just-so story, though the message about stars and children's potential to improve humanity is a bit heavy-handed. ...more

The art in this book is simply stunning! Lisa Evans has such an exquisite style with a wonderful, delicate colour palette! Unfortunately, the story was underwhelming with a message that is too obvious.

3 stars for story, 4-5 stars for illustrations. The pictures are beautiful. The story was nice but not fabulous.
