    'Jim tells Sonny that people who know the stars
    can find their way in the dark.

    The Horse, the Stars, and the Road is a stunning watercolour picture book.

    The other kids in Sonny's class have cool things to bring into school. Not Sonny. He can't think of anything really good.

    But then Uncle Jim takes Sonny on an amazing road trip – in a horse-drawn wagon. Sonny learns loads of exciting stuff with Uncle Jim, real grown-up skills.

    And that's not all. Sonny's uncle has made something very special for him. Sonny can't wait to bring it into school!

    "An absolute delight. A book for every home." – The Sunday Times

    Lucy Kelly-Desmond  studied Textile Design at the Centre for Creative Arts and Media, Galway (Ireland) followed by a course in children’s book illustration at UAL, Chelsea School of Art.  She lives near Ballinasloe in Ireland, where Europe’s oldest horse fair takes place every October.  From observing one of Ireland’s last tinsmiths at the fair, an idea for a story was formed.  This is her first picture book.
