"Establishes Lindqvist as Sweden's Stephen King." --The Washington Post on Harbor John Ajvide Lindqvist has been crowned the heir apparent to Stephen King by numerous sources, and he is heralded around the globe as one of the most spectacularly talented horror writers working today. His first novel, Let the Right One In, is a cult classic that has been made into iconic films in both Sweden and in the United States. His second novel, Handling the Undead, is beloved by horror fans everywhere. His third novel, Harbor, is a masterpiece that draws countless comparisons to Stephen King. Now, with Little Star, his most profoundly unsettling book yet, Lindqvist treads previously unmarked territory. A man finds a baby in the woods, left for dead. He brings the baby home, and he and his wife raise the girl in their basement. When a shocking and catastrophic incident occurs, the couple's son Jerry whisks the girl away to Stockholm to start a new life. There, he enters her in a nationwide singing competition. Another young girl who's never fit in sees the performance on TV, and a spark is struck that will ignite the most terrifying duo in modern fiction. Little Star is an unforgettable portrait of adolescence, a modern-day Carrie for the age of internet bullies, offensive reality television, and overnight You Tube sensations. Chilling, unnerving, and petrifying, Little Star is Lindqvist's most disturbing book to date.

Inspired by one of our most popular children's lullabies, Jerry Pinkney's gentle world--where the loving arms of nature embrace us despite darkness or uncertainty--is perfect for easing little ones into dreamland.

"In this irreverent potty-training adventure based on the popular nursery rhyme, Little Star is told over and over again exactly where not to "tinkle": not in the sandbox, not on a horse, not on a slide and not in the pool! The toddler's mounting distress and discomfort is made evident through facial expressions as Little Star tries desperately to enjoy different experiences while endeavoring not to have an accident. At the end of the story, Little Star, having made it through many adventures, safely sits on the potty, relief apparent in a big smile"--

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star combines lively pictures with a classic nursery rhyme that's easy for parents and carers to recognise and recite. Young children will adore searching the page for flaps to open while singing along. The spotting game at the end is a great incentive to go through the pages once again until each tiny thing is found! Nursery Rhymes are important stepping stones to language development. The rhymes usually tell a story, too, with a beginning, a middle and an end. This teaches children that events happen in sequence, and they begin to follow along. Nursery rhymes are also full of repetition, making them easy to remember, and often become some of a child's first sentences.

SYNOPSIS This is the story of a small star that feels sad because it doesn’t stand out among all the other stars that light up the night sky. ‘Why can’t I be as important as the Pole Star?’, the Little Star wonders as she shines less and less brightly with each passing night. Seeing the Little Star so sad, the Moon tries to cheer her up. Yet, it is not her who finally gets the Little Star to start feeling better. How will the Little Star ever manage to shine so brightly again? Who will finally take notice of her? This tender and original story, which will move both parents and children, is Alessandra Cesana’s debut as a children’s author. This little tale shows us the importance of feeling good about oneself for our emotional wellbeing. The Little Star cannot aspire to become one of the larger, more remarkable stars in the sky and so she must simply accept herself as she is. While progress and growth are important, accepting ourselves as we are is important for our emotional wellbeing too. We have to accept both the good things about ourselves and the flaws as well, especially if we are lucky enough to have someone who loves us the way we are.
