You oncetwinkled in the stars, criss-crossed the cosmos,before and beyond.Untilone magic moment . . . destiny dawned.
In this luminescent and poetic story, twin babies float and play in the cosmos—at first alone, and then together—dreaming of cuddles and kisses and a place to call home. Soon, they are tenderly called to Earth, where their loving families await them: You once twinkled in the stars. Now you sparkle in our hearts.

This is destined to be a treasured gift for twins and their loved ones, and a classic for years to come.
