Description

Gracie had a star. Every night it shone for her outside her bedroom window.


" You' re my special star," she whispered.


But every morning, as dawn breaks, Gracie' s star fades from the sky. So one sparkling night Gracie climbs the tallest tree and gently takes her star out of the sky. Now she will have it with her all the time.


Then, what a disappointment! In Gracie' s hands, her star lies dull, cold and grey. She fills her room with sparkly things, puts the star in a rockpool, and takes it to the place where the fireflies flitter. But nothing can make her star shine. At last Gracie knows what she has to do... and that night she gets a wonderful surprise.

Review quote

` Littlewood' s tale nicely captures childhood imagination, and her watercolors lend it an extra layer of dreaminess. Blonde, pigtailed Gracie is an appealing blend of wonder and determination, and the landscapes she inhabits are lovely.'

` A gentle engaging story - you really want the star to shine for Gracie - with illustrations that subtly complement the story.'

'Star Girl delivers an emotional kick at the end... the illustrations are beautiful and will draw children to follow Gracie' s magical adventure and understand its message that wonderful things in the natural world must stay where they belong.'
