Up in the black night sky sits a Big Mooncake which Little Star's mama made. At a warning, the little girl in her star pajamas is told to not eat it. But who could resist such a scrumptious looking delight sitting there in its golden glory. So Little Star takes a bite before scampering off with her rabbit. This continues night after night because she reasons that there is no evidence. However, both the diminishing moon, and a trail of yellow crumbs sparkling in the dark point mama right to Little Star. Is this mother upset? No, she just takes her impish child in hand, and says lets make another. A Big Cake for Little Star is not only an adorably sweet portrayal of the relationship between mother and daughter, but it is also a delightfully whimsical explanation for the moon's phases. Because of its solid black backgrounds, the yellow and tans from the illustrations, and the white text sit out in a striking manner. The composition of the each page lends itself so well to the storytelling experience that it is also worth noting. It is most deserving of the Caldecott Honor award.
