A little girl keeps hearing that her sister is a ‘star’. She has the best fancy dress costume, plus she is good at knitting and finding things. Desperate to be a star too, the little girl makes a wish, but then her grandad tells her all about how the world began and that, in fact, everyone is made of stardust.

A gentle story of sisters and stars, this sweet narrative will make an especially perfect bedtime story for grandfathers and their granddaughters. The big bang information will intrigue older children, while younger readers can enjoy the magic of being made from stars.

Briony May Smith’s illustrations capture the dark night and the busy scenes of family life. A lovely book that will have wide appeal.
