  One summer evening a little girl makes a wish "on the brightest star" in the night sky; she dreams of having a cottage by the sea. What follows is a lyrical and image filled description of the girl's life by the sea; the places she would explore, the adventures she would have, and the treasures she would find and enjoy.
  With the most delicate of paintings and minimal text this is a book about a simple dream which comes true, and about the love that one person has for a life by the sea. Tender and simply told this book is a great find.
