Starry the Sheep is perfectly content in her pen next to the apple tree.
Then Luna arrives.
Luna is new. Luna is boisterous. The school children are delighted.
Starry is not.
The third book in the Starry the Sheep series reminds us that when it comes to friendship, someone new might not fit the exact mold we have in mind, but that someone may be exactly what we need.
“Starry enjoys her pleasant and often happy days at the schoolyard. But sometimes it can be a bit too quiet. Even lonely. Then she meets somebody new. Full of colorful, lush illustrations, Starry’s New Friend, is an inspiring story about making a new friend.”
~ Jim Paillot, Dad, Children’s Author, and Illustrator of the My Weird School Chapter Book Series
“Starry’s New Friend is a stellar addition to the Starry the Sheep series. Young children will love the adorable illustrations and will fall in love with Starry all over again. This book tackles some complicated topics such as friendship, differences, sharing, unexpected change and loneliness. Fox’s love for children and intuitive nature shines once again in Starry’s New Friend. This is a must have for anyone who cares for young children.”
~ Nicole, Elementary School Counselor and Mom of Three
“Starry’s adventures with her new goat neighbor, Luna (who becomes a friend) validate a child reader who may be experiencing uncomfortable and scary changes in their own life. It’s a charming and uplifting story that I’m sure young fans will want to hear over and over again.”
~ Rita Goldner, Author and Illustrator of Agent H20 Rides the Water Cycle and Orangutan: A Day in the Rainforest Canopy
