One night, a bird swallows a star, making him as bright as a diamond. Because of that, nobody wants him around. Except . . . an amazing traveler who crosses the vast desert. Discover how one little bird, who is excluded by all of his fellow animals for being different, is able to find solace and friendship after shedding a few glittering tears. The wonder of what follows and the open ending encourage everyone to let their imaginations shine. The last three spreads are without text, inviting the reader to travel with the new friends on their journey together.
