“Vole, what’s a kindred spirit?” asked Firefly. “Someone who understands the deepest dreams of your heart,” said Vole. Beautifully written and illustrated, Firefly Hollow tells the story of Firefly, Cricket, and River Vole finding their paths to reach some very untraditional dreams. Cricket dreams of catching like Yogi Berra, Firefly longs to fly to the moon, River Vole is the last of his kind and dreams of sailing down the river like his ancestors. Together they are brave, creative, and supportive of each other. My favorite book of the summer; it made me smile from the inside out. Great for 2nd-6th grades and a perfect family read-aloud, especially at dusk, outside, listening to the crickets sing.
"They might be small, but the animals of Firefly Hollow dream big. Baseball superfan Cricket wants to become a famous catcher. Daring Firefly hopes to fly all the way to the moon. And Vole, the last of his kind, longs to sail away in search of his long-missing family. Along with Peter, a "miniature giant" (human kid) who recently lost his best friend, these three brave creatures follow their dreams, allowing readers to follow along both through the story and through the warm, colorful illustrations. Readers who love the human-animal friendships and bittersweet feeling of books like Kate DiCamillo's The Tale of Despereaux should be sure to pick up Firefly Hollow."
