Abstract/Summary

A little girl admires the stars from her window night after night.  She decides she must touch them and sets off on a quest.  She encounters many enchantments on her adventure including a talking saw mill, a brooklet and fairies.  The fairies tell her to seek out some ambiguous helpers that will aid her in her quest.  Once she reaches her stars it is like a dream and she must determine what reality was.  It is a story of determination to achieve something that seems out of reach.
