Lizzi Light’s curious and adventurous spirit brings her to questioning all of nature and her surroundings. From the clouds above to the stars that shine, nature sends her imagination soaring. One evening the shimmering night sky inspires her on a journey. Along with her friend “Mr. Hops with one ear that flops” she fishes the stars from the sky. Wishing them to be her new best friends and share with her all their secrets, she is unaware of the consequences of her actions. Very quickly she realizes that having them all to herself is not what she imagined and they are deeply missed by all the creatures of the night. She learns a lesson of compassion and sharing, knowing once and for all that nature’s beauty is for everyone to enjoy.
