How the Stars Came to Be

Poonam Mistry

Tate Publishing

Have you ever wondered how the stars came to be?

The Fisherman’s Daughter loved to dance in the sunlight, and bathe in the glow of the moon, but when the moon disappeared for a few nights each month, she worried about her father and how he would find his way home from the sea in the darkness of the night. One night the sun finds her sobbing and so he takes one of his rays and smashes it onto the ground, creating the stars and gives the girl the task of putting them into the dark night sky.

This beautifully illustrated story gives us a new folk tale, and a new way to look up at the night sky.
