I love that this story feels like a dream. It is a dream like state. The art is impressionist like and it evokes a sense of magic and anything can happen. The story takes place during the midsummer moon. The girl rides several animals. She takes a ride on a great snowy owl looking for the star tree. There is a little red Hare, a giant stag, a polar bear and lastly, a goose.

My niece gave this 3 stars. She said it was half good half not. She was not a fan of the art and yet I loved the art.

At Midnight a girl name Mia wakes up and goes on a fantastic magical adventure with her beautiful rocking horse. On her adventure she encounters a great white owl, little red hare, white bear, giant stag, and great white goose. They race to the star tree and pluck a star, then return home. The star glimmers as a night light in her bedroom.

This book is quite possibly one of the most unique children books I've ever seen. The illustrations are beautiful and very original (done in oil pastels). The

Bought this for my little boy as was intrigued by the synopsis so glad I did it's a really lovely book. First of it's illustrated beautifully every page is bright and creative as is the story which is like nothing my son has read previously, well worth the money!

Surprisingly good. Surreal story with beautifully lyrical text. One clunky poetry passage in the middle. Can see this as a ritual bed-time story or chant. Fine-art pastel illustrations may not appeal to children. Very dreamlike. A new Goodnight Moon.

The busy illustrations made the text difficult to read and the book less enjoyable.
