A charming picture book about loneliness and making friends from a bestselling author and illustrator.

Bunny and Dog live on opposite sides of the fence. No one says hello. Or hi. But on the night of the shooting star, two doors open… From bestselling author Amy Hest and illustrator Jenni Desmond comes a charming picture book about loneliness and making friends.

Review 2017

On the Night of the Shooting Star is a book that emphasises that no matter how different you are, you can still be friends.

When Rabbit and Dog see a shooting star at the same time they soon become friends, even though they have lived near each other for a long time and never spoken before. Also, the book points out that if you don’t know someone it doesn’t mean they aren’t a good person, you just don’t know them, so don’t know what they are like.

I thought this story would be nice for a younger child, or for those just learning to read as the font was large and the full page, bright pictures helped to understand what is happening.

This is a great book and I think that kids would definitely enjoy it. It’s not a humorous book, but it was entertaining.
