The Star in the Forest


A remarkable debut that tells the story of two sisters with very different personalities who set out to find a star in a forest.

One evening in the fall, sisters Pip and Maisie are sitting in their grandparents’ cosy cottage on the edge of a forest. Maisie is restless and longs for adventure, but life at the cottage is always slow. When a bright light suddenly falls from the sky into the forest next door, Maisie can’t believe her luck―finally, an adventure has come her way! She has boots on and flashlight in hand before Pip has even put down her book.

Maisie is desperate to discover the special something as quickly as she can. As the two sisters journey through the dark forest toward the mysterious light, her imagination runs wild―perhaps it’s space treasure, gold dust, or maybe even a creature from a different planet! Pip, meanwhile, takes in the dark shapes and strange sounds around her, tentatively adjusting to the forest and its wild inhabitants.

When Maisie finally reaches the source of the light, she is bitterly disappointed―the special something is no more than a lump of rock. But thanks to Pip’s careful observations, they realize it is, in fact, a star!

With enchanting illustrations, this delightful debut children’s picture book is sure to enchant children and parents alike.
