Synopsis

Small Billy and the Midnight Star by Nettie Hilton, Bruce Whatley

Every night, the smallest bilby looks up at the midnight sky and searches for his favourite star - the smallest one that hangs close to the edge of the sky. Every night she shines down on him. But one night, fearful that she may go away and never come back, the smallest bilby decides to give her something that will make her remember him forever and always.
