Middlesbrough Central Library- Starlight


Written by:


Starlight is presented by Middlesbrough Town Hall. The story of a little possum and his journey of discovery in science, nature, friendship and family.

Starlight is the story of little possum, who went outside one night and saw bright stars shining in the sky. They were so beautiful. He collected some starlight to take home. The next day his mother was ill and little possum had to find his own food. He was afraid of going out alone, but his mother told him how brave and clever he was…

…and so his great journey began. He met other interesting animals along the way, who taught him all about friendship and family. He also discovered lots of things about science and nature. Caught in the dark he had to find his way home by starlight.

The audience will all be given some starlight to take home!
