|— Description (Translated) • Tsubasabunko|
Kirby of the Stars is a series of children's novels based on the Kirby series written by Mie Takase (高瀬美恵) that are exclusive to Japan.
Usually, when a new book is released, it's heavily based on whichever game was released closest before that book (i.e., Kirby's Labyrinth Adventure! is based upon Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse), or a Kirby-based event in Japan around the time of the book's release (i.e., The Mystery on the Pupupu Train!? is based on the Pupupu Train event in Japan). However, some have original story lines. Some books also introduce original characters exclusive to the novels. Two to three books are usually released per year and each book has eight to fourteen chapters with 200-300 pages, though the exact number of pages is unknown.
Please note that the book titles through Kirby Clash Team Unite! are official localizations in the Kirby Art & Style Collection book. The ones that follow it are unofficial names translated to be reminiscent of the localized names.
