Shortlisted for the The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2021Have you ever wondered hoe the stars came to be?
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.

This beautifully illustrated story gives us a new folk tale, and a new way to look up at the night sky.
