In 2006, Ibi made a painting about a certain childhood memory of catching Fireflies and Looking up at the Stars.
In 2016, this painting's story was published by Scholastic after it won that year's gold prize in their Kids are authors writing contest
In 2019, Ibi completed a live action and animated movie about this story. This movie, simply called MY FIREFLIES opened on April 20 and is currently being shown at some film festivals
Check out this great video of Ibi with his Fireflies event in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
