A Lantern of Fireflies: An Illustrated Treasury of Tales of Adventure, Discovery, and Magic is the latest student publication from 826michigan, featuring twenty Huron High ninth-graders and a class of second-grade students from Mitchell Elementary. The students produced the collection of bedtime stories—they wrote the stories that they wish they'd had when they were younger.
Each of the stories has been thoughtfully illustrated, with input from the student writers, by a different artist, including the Caldecott-winning Erin and Phil Stead, Jon Klassen, and Dan Santat among many others. Award-winning children's book author Mac Barnett has written the foreword and Oliver Uberti has designed the cover and end papers, as well as contributing illustrations.
The resulting book is sure to take young readers along for journeys they’ll wish to repeat again and again.
