The Star Tree by Catherine Hyde
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

When a little girl's nightlight goes out, she takes a magical midnight journey to the Star Tree in this beautiful bedtime read from fine artist Catherine Hyde.

A little girl embarks on a magical midsummer night’s journey in this beautiful and atmospheric picture book. In the silvery moonlight Mia tiptoes to her window and glides out into the night on the back of a friendly owl. ‘Fly up to the planets,/ Up through the stars,/ This side is Venus,/ That side is Mars’ goes the text, a gentle lullaby that sets the tone for the story that follows and which is illuminated by Catherine Hyde’s illustrations, midnight-rich pinks, purples and blues, and golden morning light. Is Mia awake, or asleep for her wonderful journey? It’s up to the reader to decide, and either way her adventure will spark their imaginations. Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Star Tree by Catherine Hyde

It is midnight on Midsummer's Eve and Miranda's nightlight has gone out. She climbs on her rocking horse and makes a wish... And so begins a magical midnight journey with the great white owl, the little red hare, the big white bear, and the giant stag, all the way to the Tree of Constellations, where Miranda plucks one small star. The great white goose takes her safely home, where now the night light glimmers, star-like, as Miranda sleeps.

A mysterious, magical picture book with beautiful, dreamlike illustrations.
