Look up at the stars, so high above me. If I could just hold one, how happy I’d be!
A parent and child go in search of a star, but what will happen when they find it out of reach? This lyrical picture book celebrates imagination, adventure, coming home – and the idea that sometimes what you are looking for is right under your nose.
