We love this book so very much! Jackson was completely pulled in and inspired to create his own stories based on this theme and character. Completely charming with lush illustrations. ( )

In the end the tears become something beautiful, but it is a bit creepy along the way. A tall tale in a way, but it does not seem feasible at all. ( )

In the evening, between supper and bedtime, an invisible fairy slips into homes to steal tears of shame, fear, pain, and sadness, then climbs to the moon where she transforms the sackful of droplets into something wonderful.
