Jordi lives alone on a barren, rocky hillside. Every day he chases his smallherd of goats over the hills with the patience that comes from living a difficult, solitary life.But one day, after a terrible thunderstorm, he finds a most unusual friend. Jordi's never had a friend before. He's worried that she won't like living the kind oflife he leads. So he sets about gathering the beauty of the mountainside to bring her. And before he knows it, he's found it for himself. Alma Flor Ada has created a moving tale of faith and the beauty that unfurls withlove. Although Jordi's Star reads as a folktale, it is an original story. The author's love forfolktales has lent the story its flavor of a traditional tale. Jordi is a popular name in Catalonia. Saint Jordi is the patron saint of Catalonia. Tocelebrate Saint Jordi's feast day, April 23, friends greet each other with the traditional giftof a rose and a book.
