What is Alicia & the Light Bulb People in Star Factory 13 about?
Where do light bulbs go when they burn out? Do they stay dead forever? Or can they be regenerated to live a brand new life with a brand new purpose? If they’re lucky they go to Star Factory 13 to become glorious stars in the sky…after they pass a rigorous test of their personality given by Carelia the Light Goddess, that is.
But how in the world did 10-year-old Alicia get to Star Factory 13? All she did was go shopping in Walker’s Department Store with Mother to buy a new lamp for her bedroom. Could there really have been some magic in that department store Christmas tree? Or perhaps it was the ride in the elevator with the Golden Door that did it. The elevator button said “Press Me” and Alicia willingly obliged.
Up she rode to the 13th floor to find an assortment of wise-cracking light bulb people, all with distinct personalities, each coming from sad, silly or desperate circumstance, all hoping to take their rightful place in the heavens.
Alicia and the Light Bulb People is an enchanting tale of friendship, courage, and realizing your star potential through the magic of believing!
This is a magical fantasy that also addresses issues of self-esteem, bullying, courage, and compassion. It’s a wonderful book for parents and children to share, and is a vivid reading experience for classroom and library story times.
You can buy a copy of the book via your favourite book retailer or on Amazon
