It is midnight on Midsummer’s Eve and Miranda’s nightlight has gone out. She climbs on her rocking horse and makes a wish… And so begins a magical midnight journey with the great white owl, the little red hare, the big white bear, and the giant stag, all the way to the Tree of Constellations, where Miranda plucks one small star. The great white goose takes her safely home, where now the night light glimmers, star-like, as Miranda sleeps. A mysterious, magical picture book with beautiful, dreamlike illustrations.
