Publisher's Summary

A Very classic from Eric Carle, creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

When a very lonely firefly goes out into the night searching for other fireflies, it sees a lantern, a candle, and the eyes of a dog, cat, and owl all glowing in the darkness. It even sees a surprise celebration of light. But it is not until it discovers other fireflies that it finds exactly what it's looking for!

Soothingly told with a gentle rhythm and complete with a surprise sure to "light up" children's faces, The Very Lonely Firefly will fast become a story-time favorite. Listen with a flashlight in the dark or under the table - and imagine the fireflies glow!

Praise for The Very Lonely Firefly:

"This is a compelling accomplishment [and a] guaranteed winner as a read-aloud or read-alone." (School Library Journal)

What the critics say

"Carle's richly hued, collage-like art and gentle text will be comfortingly familiar to his numerous young devotees." (Publishers Weekly)
