Where the Stars Come to Play (H/B)
A heart-warming story, about a boy who decided to help his fisherman father mending the fishing net, instead of following his friends watching exciting fireworks, even he wanted to. Touched by the choice made by his son, the father brought him to a magical place where the stars come to play! It was a magical night the boy would not forget, especially it was spent exclusively between him and his father.
A truly Malaysian story, portraying the life of villagers in some parts of Malaysia. Fireflies habitat still exist in some parts of Malaysia. Visiting those places would be a precious experience with your child(ren), in sha Allah.
Another heartfelt book by the Lim sisters.
