In this whimsical tale, Rose and Sky Heart are taken by surprise one fall afternoon when a spaceship lands in a nearby open field. An earth-like boy emerges from the ship introducing himself as, Starbright of Planet Om. Instantly a bond of friendship is formed.


The adventures of Starbright, and his earthling friends explore many issues and challenges children face today, which make this book intelligent and thought provoking, as well as an instrumental teaching tool for children.


Author Jyoti Ma, also sets forth a universal ethic. This universal ethic is selfless love, and its immediate manifestation in the family and compassion for all living things. One inherent in our universe that moves into form, is multiplied, and changes the world.


With its social overtones, readers of all ages will enjoy these well written, entertaining, and quirky tales. Eye catching, colorful illustrations also help bring these adventures and characters to life appealing to the imagination of young and old alike.


I recommend this delightful book as a bedtime story to kindle the spirit of goodness within ones heart or for parent and child as a way to stay connected.
