With the combination of powerful, spare language and sumptuous, complex imagery characteristic of her work, Yuyi Morales weaves the tale of a fawn making her way through a landscape that is dangerous, beautiful — and full of potential. A gentle voice urges her onward, to face her fears and challenge the obstacles that seek to hold her back. In a world full of uncertainty, Bright Star seeks to offer reassurance and courage. Yuyi Morales explores the borderlands — the plants, animals, and insects that make their home in the desert, and the people who live and travel through this unique and beautiful part of the world.
