The Lost Stars by Hannah Cumming
  

Lovereading view...

Cherish our stars! This is a beautiful and lyrical story which also carries an important message about preserving and relishing the wonder of the night sky. As the lights of the city get brighter, the stars begin to fade from view. The worrying thing is that nobody notices…Where can they have got to? And why are they hiding? A brave group set off to find the stars and to beg them to return to the night sky.

Synopsis

The Lost Stars by Hannah Cumming

Everyone has become so focused on bright lights and new technology that they have forgotten about the stars. Fed up with not being appreciated, the stars decide to leave their posts and go on holiday. But what will happen when the lights go out? A charming picture book, from an emerging new talent, warning us to appreciate the natural beauty of the world, before it is lost.

About the Author

Hannah Cumming

Hannah grew up in Dorset, England, and was drawing and writing stories as soon as she was old enough to hold a pencil. After teaching in a primary school in Malaysia (and doodling many pictures on the blackboard), it dawned on her that putting pictures and words together was how she wanted to make a living. She went on to study Illustration at University College Falmouth, graduating in 2007 with First Class Honours.

She has twice gained Highly Commended in the Macmillan Children’s Book Prize for her original picture book ideas and was commissioned to illustrate her first book, ‘The Gift’, written by Victoria Field for Fal Publications, while at university.
She has produced work for a number of clients since, including Brightday Publishing, the NSPCC, and the Welsh Assembly.

Hannah enjoys walking up hills (Eggardon Hill in Dorset is her favourite), baking experimental cakes, drinking tea, and with her artist sister Chloe, forms an as yet unbeaten Pictionary team.

Kerry Bridges

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!
