Staff Reviews

A strange but wondrous book that will make the right kid very happy. Heather is a unique character. She is never scared or shocked when her alien friend arrives. She is not afraid to go out among the stars either. It is a bit sad, watching her wait all those years for her alien friend to come back, but the ending is sweet.

— From Picture Books We Love


E.T. meets The Giving Tree in this stunningly illustrated picture book about friendship, family, wonder, and magic that shows how, sometimes, the things we’re searching for have been right in front of us all along. From the award-winning creator of The Bear and the Piano. 

Heather wants more than anything to go to outer space, where the stars sparkle with magic and wonder. When a UFO lands behind her house and she meets a friendly alien, it seems that all of her dreams have come true. But soon her new friend has to return home. Will the spaceship ever come back for her? And if it does, is Heather ready to leave everything on Earth behind?

In this tale about dreaming big while appreciating what you have, best-selling picture book creator David Litchfield's innovative visual storytelling uses wordless, light-filled spreads and graphic novel style layouts to transport readers through space and time and celebrate the power of family and human connection.
