When I got this little comic (very quickly, very safely packaged), I read it, I loved it and I went immediately back to find more of Neil Slorance's books. Do I need to say more? If you're not convinced yet, the style is very cute, the main character is in a situation many of us will recognise and the way it's resolved made me feel small in a good and reassuring way! You also get to learn really cool things about stars and it will very likely make you want to immediately get a telescop and go out stargazing. It really is a little treasure, a perfect gift, a much needed reminder and an invitation all at once. And to top it all off, there was a little handwritten Thank-you-note that really made my day! Thank YOU so much! :)

I am thrilled to bits with this wee gift for my husband who is an amateur astronomer I’m In hospital and wanted to say thank you for visiting me every day and for all the little and big things he lovingly does. I messaged Neil who contacted me and offered to put a message and sign the book… My husband was so happy. Thanks again.

I ordered this alongside Neil's travelogues and they're so beautiful the stories and illustrations are lovely, he's such a talented artist! They came in good time and the package included a hand written note by Neil which was a pleasant surprise x
