OUT NOW! .....

Finn's father makes and mends stars. Finn is not allowed to help. His father likes things done a certain way and so do the people down on the ground who look up at the stars every night. Finn's ideas are...different. But when his father falls ill, Finn decides to step in. Firing up the star-making machine, he gets to work, filling the sky with glittering stars of every colour - an extraordinary array that stuns - and delights - the stargazers below. A joyful and fun-filled celebration of creativity, imagination and daring to be different.
