Moon tells Little Star a story about a wishing star that grants wishes and Little Star decides that this is what he wants to be. After Baba Yellow puts him to bed, Little Star naughtily jumps out of bed and sneaks off. He overhears each Cloudbaby wishing for help on each of their jobs and so, resolved to be a Wishing Star by secretly making wishes come true, he and Bobo White attempt to help them. Unfortunately they make a mess of everything. The Cloudbabies wish he would do what he was told and sleep till nighting time. Little Star hears this and gets very upset, convinced that he will never be a wishing star. Moon tells the Cloudbabies about her story and reassures them that Little Star was only trying to make their wishes come true. The Cloudbabies wake up Little Star to tell him that he did make one of their wishes come true - that he would sleep until nighting time - which he had! Little Star is very pleased with himself, and as a treat, is flung into the sky to twinkle all through the night.
