Melted Star Journey
by Nancy Hundal
illustrated by Karen Reczuch

A lyrical, imaginative story told from a child's unique perspective

It's the story of Luke, sitting in the back seat of his family's darkened car, snuggled between his siblings, safe in that place between sleep & the reality of the awake-world. He finds the rain & the night have transformed his everyday world into something extraordinary


It's a truly incredible book

Its depiction of this totally ordinary family scene brought back a recollection of a time of being so small that falling asleep in the back of a car was normal, & you could expect to be carried into the house at the end of the trip & mercifully deposited in a cosy bed

It transports you to a place that is poetic & magnetic

It captures the warmth & security of family from a child’s perspective, & a glimpse of simple ways in which the ordinary can become extraordinary

Text is poetic & rich in imagery. Realistic illustrations vividly convey play of light blurred by rain & suggest the magical world that Luke sees. The star-patterned blanket on Luke’s bed at the end nicely recalls the many other “stars” in the book

It highlights the ordinary magic of the real world
