Starlight Sailor by James Mayhew

Award-winning artist Jackie Morris's dream-like illustrations provide an enchanting interpretation of James Mayhew's lyrical poem. Includes instructions on how to make your own paper boat.

Suitable for the National Curriculum Predictable Structure & Patterned Language criterion for KS1. An ideal bedtime read, it encourages children to dream and imagine, with beautiful illustrations and high Fin production values.
