This beautifully illustrated story, Poonam’s first title with Tate Publishing, is a folk tale for a new generation. How the Stars Came to Be gives us a different and magical way to understand the night sky.
Have you ever wondered how the stars came to be in the sky?
The Fisherman's Daughter loved to dance in the Sunlight, and bathe in the glow of the Moon, but when the moon would disappear for a few nights each month, she would worry about her father and how he would find his way home from sea in the deep darkness.
