We Are Stars

Sending love to a dear friend.


A few weeks before the passing of my dear friend and colleague Amy Krouse Rosenthal, a huge boxful of teacups arrived on her front porch in Chicago. I had sent them to her to accompany a stop-motion film that I made for her — a gesture of love to her and her nearest and dearest. Here I share the film with you too. It’s for all of us, really.

Amy Krouse Rosenthal and I co-authored On The Spot together. We loved to bounce around ideas and were always scheming our next lovely thing. You might love to watch her film, The Beckoning of Lovely, read her heart-breaking and gorgeous Modern Love column, or donate to the AKR Yellow Umbrella Foundation. And be sure not to miss her amazing books for children and adults — such as Spoon, Uni the Unicorn, and Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal.
