Synopsis

Josie the Giraffe and the Starry Night A Picture Story for the Under 5s, Embellished with Silver Stars by Nicola Baxter

This is a charming picture story about a curious giraffe named Josie and her helpful friends on the African plains. You can follow the little giraffe's exciting journey of discovery in this perfect bedtime storybook for the under 5s. Sparkling silver foil stars are used for a special finish. One night, Josie the giraffe is strolling across the African plains looking for food and water when she finds a waterhole, looks down into the clear pool and sees something amazing - hundreds of sparkly, silver lights. She can't help feeling that her life has changed forever! But what is the meaning of what she has seen, and who can help her to find out the answer? This delightful story follows Josie as she tries to discover the secrets of the night sky by asking her helpful animal friends - elephant, warthog, zebra and antelope. With large, beautiful illustrations and simple text, children and grown-ups will love this magical tale that is perfect for reading at bedtime. The book is prettily decorated with silvery sparkling stars on the cover and final spread, and will captivate every young reader's imagination.
