Eastman, P.
D Sam and the Firefly New York Random House books for Young Readers, 1958.
Genre Fiction Animals This book is about an owl who wakes up at night and has no one to play with The owl then sees a bunch of glowing lights and comes to find his new friend Gus the firefly The Owl has a great idea to spell out their names in the sky using Gus s tail After they spell out their first few words Gus finds out how much fun it is to spell words and begins to cause mischief by telling cars at an intersection to go when they shouldn t, stop when they shouldn t and go different directions than they shouldn t causing a crash Sam sees this and begs Gus to stop because it isn t nice Gus however does not listen and continues causing trouble until one of his victims catches him and plans to get rid of him The story ends with Sam saving Gus in order for Gus to stop a train which saves the man who was going to dispose of Gus in the first place The story teaches kids that even though learning words can be fun, words need to be used correctly and not used to hurt others The book also teaches how certain parts of the world work for example traffic The illustrations have always been a personal favorite of mine I can see the ability for Gus to make words being very amusing to younger children I personally used to pretend the firefly was spelling out other words I also believe that the illustrations are closer to a realistic perspective save for the owl and the firefly which may cause a younger reader to beinterested in the book.

5 STARSHow cute is Sam I love the cover Sam is the adorable owl who longs for a friend when he awakens at night and all the other farm and woodland animals are asleep Lonely Sam finally finds a firefly and they strike up a friendship The best fun is that Sam knows how to write words and he flies around forming letters, with the firefly following him, and the firefly s glow makes the words glow in the night sky How neat Up to this point, I like the story very much The illustrations are wonderful they have the old timey night time blue green color that I loved so much in Dr Seuss The Pale Green Pants with Nobody Inside Them and the easy reader words are well chosen and evoke a touching story that is also very helpful to early readers I m afraid that, after that, the story falls apart for me a little The firefly takes his new powers and begins making words in the sky that mess with people s lives like writing Go and Stop at the wrong times and making cars crash at intersections It s very clear that Sam thinks these are BAD tricks, and the firefly eventually does get a bit of a punishment and learns his lesson I think and there s a nice twist to the ending of which I ultimately approved I think that, really, the story just got too long for my taste and I got a teensy bit bored Still, I think that some beginning readers will really love this story And, since it was originally published in the mid 1950s, I just felt all happy and nostalgic even though I wasn t born in the 50s holding the book in my hands and thinking of how many young readers, over the years, read this story in their living rooms and how, despite the changing fashions, home decorating schemes, and world events, a story about a cute little owl and his firefly friend continues to touch and inspire readers after all these years Hooray for the power of books When I was four years old I wanted to read this book but could not read.
That spring my mother asked, Want to take tennis lessons We had a tennis court next door My answer was, No I want to learn to read My mother s dream of tennis stardom died that day Fortunately for me my mother is the unselfish kind and sent me to a beginner s summer reading program and by the end of it I read my first book on my own this one.
I know that people do not care about this story but I wanted to carve my name in this book somehow.
Sam and the Firefly is a cute story but maybe not extraordinary to those that do not know its power To me, it will always hold a special place on my book shelf.
