I used to love these books, and after finding them in the attic decided to re-read them due to nostalgia. You wanna know a secret?...I used to think the storyline was true *cringe*. Of course these books are aimed at young kids but I still enjoyed the story! I found this first one in the series a bit boring was generally an introduction.

I can assure you that many girls aged between maybe 7-10 would like these books! I certainly did back then. I read this very quickly because of the v
I feel a bit weird rating this. It's one of my favourite childhood books, I read it when I was about 8 years old and was absolutely in love with it. It's a very charming and magical little story, and I did enjoy revisiting it. Doesn't really hold up anymore, but I wasn't expecting it too.

I can remember looking up at the night sky, wishing I could fly up into the stars...

I first read this book when I was 10. I know that it's a bit late to start reading them, and it took me half a day to finish, but two years later I'm still in love with these books as much as I was when I first read them. I'm reading much older books now, but these books will always have special place in my heart.

I read this when I was younger, I know it's a girly book but the cover looked interesting so I decided to read it, to my surprise it was actually good I may even try go read the other Linda Chapman books.

Omg I just remembered what I loved so much about these books. This first book was as amazing as I remember it being and I'm so glad i found this series again.

Loved this series as a kid, definitely my favourite childhood book.

Hope I can pass this series onto my children one day.

I feel like these books could have been combined like books 1-4 should have been one books, or maybe two, because it always felt like they stopped in the middle of a chapter rather than the middle of a book. Apart from that, though, I really enjoyed re-immersing myself in the Stardust world.

It just 3 stars not because I don't like the story
but it may fit younger person than me more
although I like the main story line and the whole idea of the story
may be I'll get next one and read it :)
