Staff Reviews


This book utterly charmed me! Denos’s story and art are nothing short of magical. I loved Eridani and Acamar’s long-distance, interstellar friendship, as well as their sheer delight when they swap places (if you’re a dog lover like me, look for star-boy Acamar hugging Eridani’s dog—I WEEP). The ethereal, whimsical art makes this story magic in book form. Perfect for any reader with stars in their eyes and a longing for adventure in their heart (and don’t miss the author’s note!)!

Description


A resonant story of two friends trying to maintain their relationship from afar with dazzling results, filled with wishes, curiosity, and bravery. From award-winning author-illustrator Julia Denos.

She was made of blood and bones, and he was made of space and stars. 

Back in a time when there were still students of the stars, there were two friends, Acamar and Eridani.

Eridani was a star pupil studying the night skies, and Acamar . . . well, he was made of the stuff she studied.

In a star-crossed twist of fate, these long-distance friends find they’ve wished themselves into unexpected new worlds.

Filled with stardust and moonglow, this cosmic adventure shows us how even the most brilliant wishes can have a mind of their own—and that true friendship can endure, despite time and space.
