The cover of 'The Gingerbread Star'

Little Hetty dreams of being a glow-worm instead of a boring old grey worm.

She wants a light of her own so she can glow and light up the dark places. All the better to read after lights-out!

So off Hetty sets, determined to get a glow of her very own. But will any of the people who live in the forest actually be able to help her achieve her dream?

High quality cream paper and a special easy to read font ensure a smooth read for all.
