Curious Fox ‘The Night The Stars Went Out’ Book Review


Mia has always loved books since she very, very little and as keen readers ourselves, Mario and I have encouraged Mia by reading to her every day. We have reviewed a few books now for Curious Fox, most recently our Spring Books, so we were really pleased when another great book dropped onto the mat a few weeks ago!

We were sent Suz Hughes first authored and illustrated book ‘The Night The Stars Went Out’. Due out in October 2016 with an RRP of £6.99, ‘The Night The Stars Went Out’ is a great little story about problem solving and friendship conquering all! The main character is Alien who is in charge of keeping the stars shining but he is very serious about his job and doesn’t have any friends. One night the stars go out and its Alien’s job to fix them! He travels to Earth (complete with a human disguise; a moustache!) in order to bring the stars back and after a few mishaps, he meets a little boy called George who tries to help him. Fast forward to the end, Alien and George become firm friends and amazingly the stars return to light up the night sky once again!

‘The Night The Stars Went Out’ is a lovely story about friendship and how friends can help solve even the most serious of problems! The book is great as children can enjoy the story and illustrations as well as parents enjoying the subtler jokes and themes. The illustrations are engaging for children, they are crayon-like so Mia really enjoyed them. Mia loved the book and although she was worried when the stars disappeared and the world was in darkness, she enjoyed seeing Alien bring the stars back and followed the storyline really well! We were also sent a couple of glow-in-the-dark stars which have become a permanent fixture next to Mia’s bed! This book would mainly appeal to children aged 3+ but uses simple enough language for younger children to enjoy too.  A really  great little book!
