What people are saying about Secret of the Starflower
“The Secret of the Starflower” is a beautifully illustrated, magical story about the importance of friendship and the power of believing in yourself.
It’s hard to find chapter books for 8-year-olds that have more than just one illustration per chapter, while also having an engaging plot. “The Secret of the Starflower” fits the bill!
Sandy faces many challenges in this book and learns some important lessons. I think many young readers will identify with Sandy’s struggles and will be inspired by her honesty, bravery, and kindness.
I’m hoping there will be future books about Sandy, Scorny, and their adventures in Spectra!
