Como nasceram as estrelas / How the Starts Were Born

Books for children and young readers , 1987


Twelve legends from the Brazilian jungle collected by Clarice Lispector from her country’s oral tradition. Each legend contains mysteries and surprises: girls and boys who turn into stars, the bird that brings luck, a toad that dances in the sky, Yara who lives at the bottom of the waters, the naughty Curupira, and the Jabutí tortoise whose wit is greater than his slowness.
