The Lovereading4Kids comment

Cherish our stars! This is a beautiful and lyrical story which also carries an important message about preserving and relishing the wonder of the night sky. As the lights of the city get brighter, the stars begin to fade from view. The worrying thing is that nobody notices…Where can they have got to? And why are they hiding? A brave group set off to find the stars and to beg them to return to the night sky.

Synopsis

The Lost Stars by Hannah Cumming

Everyone has become so focused on bright lights and new technology that they have forgotten about the stars. Fed up with not being appreciated, the stars decide to leave their posts and go on holiday. But what will happen when the lights go out? A charming picture book, from an emerging new talent, warning us to appreciate the natural beauty of the world, before it is lost.

About the Author

Hannah Cumming

Hannah grew up in Dorset, England, and was drawing and writing stories as soon as she was old enough to hold a pencil. After teaching in a primary school in Malaysia (and doodling many pictures on the blackboard), it dawned on her that putting pictures and words together was how she wanted to make a living. She went on to study Illustration at University College Falmouth, graduating in 2007 with First Class Honours.

Hannah enjoys walking up hills (Eggardon Hill in Dorset is her favourite), baking experimental cakes, drinking tea, and with her artist sister Chloe, forms an as yet unbeaten Pictionary team.
