The Night the Stars Went Out

I’ve been waiting months to tell you about this picture book! The Night the Stars Went Out is just so beautiful and has such a heart warming message at its core, that you have to love it.

Suz Hughes, The Night the Stars Went Out

Suz Hughes has been published before, but this is her first picture book as both author and illustrator. The story is about Alien who looks after the stars, and that is a huge job. And then one night all the stars go out. It is pitch black and Alien doesn’t know what to do.

Luckily he has the Star Helpline, and they point him in the direction of Earth, and off he goes.

You can learn a lot from unexpected trips and the people you meet. And that’s what Alien finds, too. Cooperation and friendship are both very important. Feeling happy. Remember this, and long may your stars shine.

(I never believed in those cleaning products anyway.)
