I like this book because of its culture and relevance to New Zealand and how it also includes pictures and Te reo. I love the mysterious feel the book has to it and how its a book where kids have to take action. I would rate it a 10/10 and thinks its a great book to have in schools and homes around NZ

This was a great book and talked about how the angel’s stole the stars and did bad stuff to them like making the clothes and breaking and hiding them under the sand. It was amazing of how the two children saved the stars. Irate it to anyone who wants to read books.
