SHORTLISTED for the 2021 CILIP KATE GREENAWAY MEDAL
Have you ever wondered how the stars came to be?
This beautifully illustrated story gives us a new folk tale, and a new way to look up at the night sky.
The Fisherman’s Daughter loved to dance in the Sunlight, and bathe in the glow of the Moon, but when the moon would disappear for a few nights each month, she would worry about her father and how he would find his way home from sea in the deep darkness. When the sun finds her sobbing one night, he takes one of his rays and smashes it onto the ground, creating the stars and giving the girl the task of putting them into the dark night sky.
