      Glowbud and Gleam are Luminessa’s fairy friends. They make special fairy string to help Luminessa and Beacon hang up the wishlights, and they love to see the forest light up with beautiful lanterns. 

      The Winter Forest Lights storybook

      Meet light-catcher Luminessa, who struggles to catch light during the dark winter months. One day, she spots a mysterious twinkling light in the branches of a tree… a wish! With a little help from the wise owl Beacon and her fairy friends Glowbud and Gleam, Luminessa uses the wishlights to light up the forest and lead the way to The Wishlight Village.
