I am feeling positively spoiled with beautiful picture books recently and I was absolutely delighted when this one popped through the letterbox. The Girl who Stole the Stars is the gorgeous debut from Scottish author and illustrator, Corrina Campbell.
It is the tale of a wee girl who loves the looking up at the night sky and seeing all the sparkly stars. She then has a brainwave and decides that, because she loves the stars so much, she will write to Santa asking him for a ladder so that she can reach up and touch them!
But her plans start to go wrong as she starts to take the stars down from the night sky and keep them for herself.
The Girl who Stole the Stars is a truly stunning, sparkling and charming picture book, ideal for snuggling up with as the dark nights roll in and as Christmas time approaches. It is beautifully written and the illustrations are just glorious.
I absolutely adored this book and would recommend everyone goes and orders a copy to share with the children in your life.
Thank you to Little Door Books for the review copy.
