Star in the Jar

Sam Hay, illus by Sarah Massini


Up high, in the dark, dark sky . . . a message: LOST, ONE SMALL STAR.

When a little boy stumbles across a special star, he puts it in a jar and takes it on adventures. Together with his big sister, he takes his special treasure with him everywhere – to the cinema, to the swimming pool and even to the toilet!

But the poor star misses its home . . .

Can the little boy and his big sister find a way to send the star safely back? Sarah Massini's artwork glows with warmth and humour and perfectly captures the friendship between the two siblings in this warmhearted bedtime book.
