Brightest by Johann de Venecia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The first story about the lost firefly and the firefly catcher is very entertaining; I read it all in one. It was weird at first especially when the firefly catchers asked for help from the firefly (who he catches) but as I go on reading I was pulled into their world. The loneliness of the old firefly and the happiness he felt when he found out that all hope wasn't lost. I also like the firefly catcher he demonstrated that even in hopeless situation it’s good to keep on trying and that never giving up can rewarding.
The second “story” or I rather call it poem is very dense in words, I have difficulty understanding the meaning behind it but in my opinion it’s a nice inspirational poem for those who lost someone, it works like a “therapeutic” words. I would give this piece 4 star out of 5.
The art in the book is lovely and magical, and I’ll give it 3-1/2 rating.
