'Alicia and the Light Bulb People in Star Factory 13' by Barbara Roman, illustrated by Vladimir Cebu, is a sweet and heartwarming story about the beauty of getting to know how ideas shape our lives. When Alicia is magically transported from a department store to Star Factory 13, she begins to learn about all of the different light bulbs and their purposes in the grand scheme of life, as well as the night sky. The fact that she nor the lightbulbs can leave until they are "ready" presents the power of certainty in one's life and how moving on and having things work out just as expected is not always the norm.

Friendship, kindness, and empathy are but a few of the themes at work in Roman's story. Each idea creates a different form of motivation within the characters, and allows Alicia to summon the courage to stand up for herself and others. A tale that brings with it a healthy dose of morals and symbolism, 'Alicia and the Light Bulb People in Star Factory 13' is not your average story, and the illustrations help bring it to life all the more.
Good Points
