The Littlest Star by Richard Littledale


The Littlest Star by Richard Littledale

Have you ever wondered how many stars there are in the great big sky? I want to tell you about the littlest star. He wasn't as sparkly or as exciting as some of the other stars, but one night the littlest star was given the biggest, most important job of all...This enchanting Christmas tale about the star that shone down on the baby Jesus was originally written, illustrated, designed, printed and placed on sale within three weeks to raise money for the Shooting Star Chase children's hospices. This edition of Richard Littledale's delightful story has been reillustrated with beautiful artwork Dubravka Kolanovic, and makes a charming Christmas gift, evoking the wonder of the special night.
