  1. Tarnia

    This was incredibly beautiful and relatable for both myself and 6yr old. Whilst preparing for a family member to die we were comforted about seeing their star rejoin the sky and twinkle high above us. He has now passed and my child asked to go outside each night and say goodnight. It’s a beautiful story and brings comfort to children in the passing of a loved one. Look to the sky above tonight and you will see them twinkle bright. Lots of happy tears.

  2. Andrew Milne

    This books narrative flows through the writing and the illustrations. It’s a matter of one compliments the other and houses an additional meeting. Of all the books we have, the little man loves this one the most.
