What a gorgeous book from the very beginning. Although for slightly younger children, my 12 and 14 year old's loved it. The story is endearing and well written, and the illustrations are so detailed and add to the story beautifully. A perfect chapter book, to help kids deal with loss and grief, and all in such a positive way. Highly Recommend.

Ollie and the starchaserReviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 July 2018
An excellent well written book that pushes your mind into wonderful realms of fantasy. The illustrations are beautifully detailed and blow your mind. An all round success.
A delight!Reviewed in the United States on 3 July 2018
What a delightful little book! It was written by a friend, so I read it out of duty because I wanted to be supportive, but fully expecting to be bored: it’s written for kids, after all! I wasn’t bored; in fact, I couldn’t put it down. It’s really an engaging story, beautifully written, and wonderfully imaginative. I’m looking forward to the sequel.
We often forget how smart kids are and how much they can handleReviewed in the United States on 10 July 2018
We often forget how smart kids are and how much they can handle. Tanya Southey's story understands this and through this story she has weaved the wisdom that can aide children and adults face loss.
