Does Starabella have a special connection to the stars? IT'S A MYSTERY. As Starabella begins to grow up, she is truly the star of her family. Her parents marvel at her extraordinary abilities. However, when Starabella's words get lost somewhere inside her, the Oclaifs are puzzled and very concerned. What has happened to Starabella's words? IT’S A MYSTERY. When Starabella receives a piano, a gift of love from her grandparents, the Oclaifs discover she has amazing musical talent. Starabella is now able to express her thoughts and feelings through beautiful music. Where does Starabella's music come from? IT’S A MYSTERY. SPECIAL FEATURES: Accompanying CD captivatingly and fully narrated by the author’s daughter Dana. Eight original musical numbers in a wide range of styles, six of which were written by the author's daughter Tara when she was a child ... and they’re now inspiring other children. Beautiful illustrations with captions to help listeners follow along with the story. Audio/visual presentation, which aids comprehension. Narration underscored with music.
