Mica the Star Sailor

by Bertie Blackman

Mica dreams of being an astronaut, just like her father.
But waiting for him to come home can feel endless.
So one night, when a shooting star streams through her window, Mica follows it and steps into a magical adventure…

A meteoric exploration of love, loss and the power of the imagination, Mica the Star Sailor is an exquisite picture book debut from the endlessly talented Bertie Blackman in dedication to her father, the late artist Charles Blackman.
