LoveReading View on On the Night of the Shooting Star

A charming picture book about loneliness and making friends from an bestselling author and illustrator.

The beauty of a shooting star starts a special friendship in this lovely new picture book. Bunny and Dog live next door to one another and have done for ages, but they’ve never spoken, even though they’re always peeping at one another through the fence. We know they’d be best friends, and indeed, once that shooting star zipping across the sky starts them talking, they don’t stop. Dog and Bunny are wonderfully warm, appealing characters and children will love peeking into their little houses which are filled with all sorts of pretty items and things to spot. They’ll be as happy as Bunny and Dog too when the two finally make friends. A happy story with a great deal for readers of all ages to relish. Andrea Reece
