Book DescriptionWhen two poor woodcutters see a star fall one bitter winter's night, they rush to the spot where it lands, hoping to find treasure. Instead they find a mysterious child, whose destiny takes them on a strange and challenging journey. A morality tale in the unique Wildean manner - this story combines sumptuous imagery with bittersweet narrative. Olwyn Whelan's illustrations glow with life and depth; author Stella Maidment achieves an accessible, modern retelling that retains the rhythm and dazzlingly visual language of the original.
