No music and laughter?
Review by The Mole
Sparkle's parents 'go out in the car one day and don't come back' so Sparkle goes to live with her aunt but her aunt won't allow music and laughter in the house.
Sparkle takes her radio outdoors to listen to music but her aunt then takes that away from her. Then she hears music and follows the sound deeper and deeper into the forest.
The pictures and colours compliment the story very well but it's not a sweet tale of a happy child. The story is more about Sparkle helping her aunt to come to terms with the death of her sister and so bringing about the return of music and laughter to a house that has forgotten how and why. So the story does end on a happy note.
