Description

On a cool spring day 
in a nest on a branch,
a tiny star found himself all alone
on a pink and white blossoming apple tree, 
rooted upon an old field of green.


In a lilting, poetic style paired with brilliant illustrations, The Star Jumped Over the Moon tells the story of a star who lives in an apple tree but desperately wishes to shine in the night sky. But how? Through the seasons, the star and the apple tree grow, facing the inevitability of change, until the star finds the courage to jump.

Review quotes

"A little star isn’t sure how he ended up alone in an apple tree. Season after season, he longs after the sky; a leap of faith will be required to get him there. Rhythmic, repeating lines make this a perfect option for bedtime.The illustrations are a lush treat, with backgrounds made up of dreamy, smudged blossoms in washes of pink and purple, natural touches like bright-eyed squirrels, and the soothing blue glow of the moon. Against these wonders, the bright yellow star glitters." - MICHELLE ANNE SCHINGLER for Forward Reviews
