We are not born in a vacuum but in a context. We call this fate; we say that we have a destiny or a star. To understand the meanings of our lives, wizards and astrologers of yore have indeed spent some time under the big scintillating vault of the sky, trying to decipher the stars.
Who would dream to tell children about such complicated pursuits as meaning or destiny? Dragos and Richard offer a response in a beautifully simple language that sometimes reminds us of the "Petit Prince of Antoine de Saint Exupery".
This mercifully short book written in a direct language proposes a different location of the one star that gives us our meaning. Without noticing it, the adult that shall too enjoy reading it will not realizes he enters a tale covering matters that sages and philosophers struggled to grasp for as long as stars have been shining
And because this book is written for children with a wink to the adult still willing to wonder and wander in children's land, the two last lines of the book are the most important ones.

There is something that is born spontaneously 'within' as one trails the Mother star in 'Alicia and the Little Star'.
It just dissolves within melting with an intangible presence of tenderness that takes you to a very familiar world of our own imagination.
And a star is born within you. It is just a bliss to take the ride through this cute little fable that makes you so full of joy.
An inevitable Mother is born and a motherhood as a child gives birth to a mother as Mother realizes the desire of her child from within. So full of compassion.
Follow little Alicia into a world of bliss, peace and harmony. It will let you forget your busy concepts of daily life, and help you see the world through a child's point of view with an open heart. And it might evoke a change of priorities for your own life.
Relearn to trust your feelings more, and find joy in every moment.
After reading this charming book I want to be Alicia now. :-)
