About the Author:

Ken Wilson-Max is the award-winning author of the Lift the Flap Learning and Transport series from David Bennett Books. Ken was born and grew up in Harare, Zimbabwe but has spent most of his working life in London. He began working as an advertising illustrator and designer before moving into children's books. Ken lives in North London with his wife, author and illustrator Manya Stojic.

From Booklist:

Ages 2-6. This is one of those books where atmosphere overrides message. The message pads in quietly at book's end, like a satisfying "ahhhh" after seeing a fireworks display. The magic comes mostly in the paintings; Wilson-Max uses intense gouache, with simple, lumpy drawings, and brushstrokes that look like children's finger painting. Somehow, these childlike paintings convey the wonder of looking at the night sky. The story centers on a little boy who lives with an elephant, Big Blue, and a pig, Little Pink. They leave their dinner of green jelly to go outside and wish upon a star. Big Blue wishes not to be afraid of the dark. To the pig's teasing, Max responds that everyone is afraid of something, and goes about hanging stars from the ceiling upstairs so that the elephant can view the sky while safe inside. A cozy book about friendship and problem solving. Connie Fletcher
